The U.S. Department of Labor’s Wage and Hour Division has
extended to April 30 the comment period for its proposed rule
regarding new military-related amendments to the Family and
Medical Leave Act. The proposed amendments would extend military
caregiver leave to veterans’ family members for up to five
years after the service member leaves the military. Furthermore,
the proposal extends qualifying exigency leave to employees whose
family members serve in the regular armed forces and not just to
family members of National Guard members and reservists. The
proposed amendments would also add a special eligibility
provision for airline flight crews.
