FMLA: Safer than I Thought?

You may remember back in December, the Department of Labor said they were soliciting comments on the Family and Medical Leave Act, and I suggested that all of you whose bacon was saved by the law (or whose lives were made more complicated by its narrow scope) to let the Feds know. As it turns out, 15,000 of you (and some business interests, too) took the time to write DOL . The government has synthesized those comments into a mammoth document: FMLA: A Report on the Request for Information.

Initial coverage has been positive and has positioned the report as a validation of the 1993 law. Advocates for sensible leave policies still seem wary.

More in On Balance on Thursday as I try to figure out whether I should be happy or worried.
