Department of Labor FMLA is showing up on the to-do list of many covered employer executive’s desks. The reason might be the business news reports discussing recent FMLA lawsuit judgments that are more frequently reaching the eight-figure level. Or it could possibly be the Department of Labor announcements regarding the planned increase in frequency and number of annual FMLA inquiries, audits and investigations. But regardless, there is a growing concern among employers with Department of Labor FMLA.
President Clinton created the Department of Labor FMLA program at a time when there was little legislation in the arena. But since that time, there has been a seemingly unending stream of state-induced legislation, from almost every state, geared at adding to the benefits or coverage of federal FMLA. Overlapping areas of state legislation with federal FMLA seem to be at the center of a great deal of confusion. And the U.S. Supreme Court’s overturning of the marriage definition presented by the Defense of Marriage Act has put individual states in control of providing an applicable definition, which is adding to the confusion with regard to the application of Department of Labor FMLA.
