Webinar Recording: The Evolution of the FMLA

Jennifer NelsonResources, Tools & Tactics Archives


The Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA) has continuously evolved since its inception in 1993, but how did we get here, and where are we going in 2020 and beyond? This webinar broke down the past 27 years of development of the FMLA, and how it’s shaped the future trajectory for the law. We provided an overview of the broad impact the FMLA has on employers, discussed developing trends within unpaid leave programs, and shared best practices to keep your programs compliant and up to date.
