Happy Birthday! Monday February 5 marks 25 years since the Family and Medical Leave Act was signed into law. I was in private practice when the law passed, and I recall an associate with our law firm presented a summary of the new law. My thought was, “This will never amount to anything.” So much for my predictive talents! Who knew that 25 years later the FMLA would be such a big part of my job every day and such a challenge for employers? The law and regulations have gone through 2 major revisions since enactment, adding things like 26 weeks to care for an ill or injured service member and special rules for flight crews.
If you want to learn more about this milestone event, including a “Thunderclap” scheduled for 1:00 EST on Monday, check out this page on the website for the National Partnership for Women & Families: 25th anniversary of the FMLA activities.
