Federal FMLA Law Changed; Labor Law Poster Change to Follow

Q:   Was a change in the federal FMLA signed on Oct. 28, 2009 (Law #111-84 Section 565)?

A: Yes.   On Oct. 28, 2009, the President signed into law Public Law 111-84, Section 565, which amended the federal FMLA.   This was part of the National Defense Authorization Act for FY 2010.

The amendments expanded FMLA military family leave provisions, but changes to the federal FMLA  poster are not expected until after new regulations are finalized, according to the U.S. Department of Labor FMLA Team.
