Spanish Federal FMLA

The revisions to the federal Family Medical Leave Act (FMLA) became effective January 16, 2009. These revisions include expanded instructions for employee responsibility for notification, definition for “serious health condition,” guidelines for employers while assessing the leave request for FMLA eligibility, and the medical certification process.

The English version of the employer posting was made available December 18, 2008. On January 16, 2009 the federal Department of Labor removed the unrevised Spanish version from their website. Per a Department of Labor source, the new FMLA Spanish version poster is awaiting language approval. As soon as this is made available, the National Safety Compliance federal Spanish labor law poster will be updated and shipments to customers will begin.
