Several of the changes to the FMLA regulations, which become effective on March 8, 2013, include:

  • Military caregiver leave for a veteran;
  • Qualifying exigency leave for parental care; and
  • A special leave calculation method for flight crew employees.

Please note that employees at work sites with less than 50 employees are not covered by the FMLA, if the employer employs fewer than 50 employees within a 75-mile radius of that work site.
