Most HR Pros Uneasy over Proposed FMLA Regs
Most HR professionals are pessimistic about the Department of Labor's proposal to revise regulations for interpreting the Family and Medical Leave Act, according to a recent poll.

When asked "How do you greet the new FMLA proposed rules?," 40 percent responded "With hope and optimism." However, 37 percent responded "With doubt and skepticism" and another 22 percent responded "With fear and dread."

On February 11, the Department published a proposal to revise regulations covering several areas of the Family and Medical Leave Act, including notice requirements, medical certification, and the definition for "continuing treatment" of a serious health condition.

The Department is seeking public comment on the proposal. Comments must be received on or before April 11, 2008.

For more information about the proposal, see our news coverage.

The poll included 129 respondents.
