Everything you need to know about the Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA)

AFSCME Guide to the Family and Medical Leave Act: AFSCME's Comprehensive Guide for You, Your Family and Your Union

After more than 11 years since passage of the Family and Medical Leave Act, questions still arise from affiliates about workers' rights under FMLA and management's implementation of the law. The AFSCME Guide to the Family and Medical Leave Act: Questions & Answers, remains the most requested publication of the International's Women's Rights Department. Also, over time, the U.S. Department of Labor (DOL) and some courts have clarified FMLA requirements.

For these reasons, the Women's Rights Department has updated its FMLA brochures in three important ways. First, the brochures have been changed to reflect a major U.S. Supreme Court decision in Ragsdale et al. v. Wolverine World Wide Inc., which struck down part of the DOL's FMLA notification requirements. Second, we have added citations for each of the DOL regulatory requirements contained in the brochure to make it easier for affiliates to locate provisions on their own. Third, we have combined both the AFSCME Guide to the Family and Medical Leave Act and the Bargaining and the Family and Medical Leave Act brochures so that affiliates can have one complete guide to the FMLA.

This publication replaces the AFSCME Guide to the Family and Medical Leave Act: Questions & Answers, and its supplement, Bargaining and the Family and Medical Leave Act.
