All covered employers (50 or more employees in a 75 mile radius) are required to display and keep displayed a poster prepared by the U.S. Department of Labor summarizing the major provisions of The Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA) and telling employees how to file a complaint. The poster must be displayed in a conspicuous place where employees and applicants for employment can see it. A poster must be displayed at all locations even if there are no eligible employees.
Several of the changes to the FMLA regulations, including military caregiver leave for a veteran, qualifying exigency leave for parental care, and the special leave calculation method for flight crew employees, will be effective on March 8, 2013.
