Enacted in 1993, the Family and Medical Leave Act, or FMLA, provides certain employees with up to 12 weeks of unpaid and job-protected leave per year. It is enforced by the Department of Labor. In 2008, the FMLA was amended to include Military Leave based on the National Defense Authorization Act. In this course, you'll learn more about the military leave included in the FMLA amendment and how it impacts you as an employer. We'll discuss eligibility, types of leave, the process for requesting leave, and what happens when an employee returns to work. We'll also go over some possible scenarios that may arise in the workplace.
