Section 585(a) amends two sections of the <br />Federal Family Medical Leave Act, (FMLA), to cover two new leave <br />rights associated with military service. <br /> <br />While the Secretary of Labor has not yet issued regulations or defined <br />coverage, parts of the act are effective immediately. Because the new <br />sections are required by law, our policy allows the county to waive the <br />comment period and implement the provisions. <br /> <br />I am attaching the proposed amended policy which adqresses, for now, <br />the new FMLA sections. When the rules are promulgated, we may need <br />to re-visit this topic. <br /> <br />SUGGESTED MOTION: <br />Move to adopt revised Section 6.02, regarding the Family Medical Leave <br />Act, for placement in the county personnel policy manual, (both on-line <br />and by the standard distribution method with monthly checks). <br /> <br />K:\BJ\FMLA POLICY MEMO 2-28-08.doc <br />
