PRESIDENT SIGNS FMLA MILITARY EXPANSION BILL
by Patricia Schaeffer, Vice President-Regulatory Affairs
On January 28, 2008, President Bush signed a bill (H.R. 4986) that amends the Family and Medical Leave Act to extend coverage to employees to care for family members injured while on active military duty. The expansion was included in a broader Department of Defense spending measure. The amendment became effective upon the President’s signature.
