ATTENTION FMLA ENTHUSIASTS AND ENFORCERS
If you are the person in the local who handles all the FMLA cases or you are negotiating a contract that will address FMLA matters, then you need to open the gift the American Bar Association just delivered. Each year it publishes an overview of the major court decisions that have addressed FMLA questions over the last twelve months—and the newest edition just came out. Those of you with FMLA responsibilities should at least page through it to see what issues are still bouncing around in the courts and what are the newest precedent cutting decisions that might help your members. Although private sector FMLA statutory provisions are notidentical to those for federal employees, they can be very helpful at times.
