Because FMLA is such a confusing and sticky issue for so many employers, we periodically compile an FMLA roundup of any updates along with a selection of the best articles and resources we’ve seen on the topic in employment law and HR blogs and publications. You can see our last update in September 2016: FMLA Update – News Tips and Resources. We haven’t found any new Fact Sheets since our last update nearly a year ago, so most of what you’ll find are articles on case law or general guidance.

First, a few handy links from the Department Of Labor.

Note that New York has recently instituted paid family leave. See Final New York Paid Family Leave Regulations Released: What Employers Need To Know

Next, courtesy of Jeff Nowak’s FMLA Insights, we point you to the annual American Bar Association’s (ABA) Report of 2016 FMLA Cases. This valuable resource for employers and employment attorneys compiles FMLA federal court decisions from the prior year.

Jeff Nowak is our go-to blog for important FMLA updates, and we note that he has recently added a subscription-based service called Leave Law Insights. This could be a valuable took if you are a multi-state employer and need to stay informed on changes to state and local Leave of Absence Laws.
