Wage and Hour Division (WHD)
Family and Medical Leave Act Webinar
One of the greatest challenges the U.S. Department of Laborís Wage and Hour Division (WHD) faces in enforcing the Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA) is that too often, employees are unaware that they have rights under the FMLA, or that the FMLA even exists. Even for employees that are aware of the FMLA, there is an additional hurdle. The FMLA is very technical, unwieldy, and can be difficult to understand, even for experienced practitioners.
WHD hosted a webinar on June 27, 2012 that walked through the basic provisions of the FMLA using the new Employee Guide and answered the publicís general FMLA questions.
