(PRWEB) March 01, 2013
Labor Law Center, a trusted online source and marketplace for business compliance solutions, announces a major update to the mandatory FMLA poster due to recent changes that become effective March 8, 2013. By this date, all covered employers are required to display the updated poster in a conspicuous place where employees and applicants for employment can see it.
Almost 20 years after it was first signed, The U.S. Department of Labor issued a final rule that gives two important expansions of the Family and Medical Leave Act, also known as the FMLA. The FMLA gives eligible employees the ability to take unpaid, job-protected leave for specific reasons.
According the information provided by the U.S. Department of Labor:
1.Families of eligible veterans will be provided with the same job-protected FMLA leave that is currently available to families of military service members. Military families can also take leave when instances arise such as childcare needs when a service member in their family is deployed.
2.Airline personnel and flight crew have had existing FMLA protections modified to fit their unique schedules better.
The Labor Law Center provides two options for employers to stay compliant with the new March 8, 2013 mandatory poster update.
Option 1: Complete Labor Law Poster Package
Includes the mandatory state, federal, OSHA poster and new FMLA poster.
Option 2: Federal Labor Law Poster
Includes the new mandatory FMLA poster to ensure compliance with new changes.
In preparation for the March 8, 2013 deadline, the Labor Law Center is offering a 20 percent discount on all products with code FMLA2013. Discount code expires March 7, 2013.
“Military families can find themselves facing big challenges and the new provisions to the FMLA are intended to ease the burden that can come with military family members needing time away from work to care for an injured service family member or find alternative childcare arrangements,” says Labor Law Center’s Jevin Kusnitzow. “Airline crews also have unique schedules and the new changes are intended to give them a special method to calculate their leave time.”
