HR professionals aren't convinced on the whole that the Department of Labor's proposed changes to regulations for interpreting the Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA) are significant, according to a recent Compensation.BLR.com poll.
When asked "Do you think the proposed FMLA changes are significant?," just 54 percent responded "Yes" while 46 responded "No."
In a recent interview with FMLA expert Frank Alvarez, a partner at Jackson Lewis and national coordinator of the firm's Disability, Leave and Health Management Group, he identified eight changes (among the dozens in the 200+ page proposal) that were particularly meaningful.
