President Obama Signs Into Law FMLA Amendment Permitting Airline Pilots and Flight Attendants To Qualify for FMLA Leave

As anticipated, cn December 21, 2009, President Obama signed into law the Airline Flight Crew Technical Corrections Act.  See my prior post concerning the new legislation. 

Senators Introduce Measure That Passed House To Allow Airline Crews To Take FMLA Leave

On July 9th, Senator Patty Murray (D-Wash) and a group of five other bi-partisan senators introduced legislation--The Airline Flight Crew Technical Corrections Act--that would permit flight attendants and pilots to qualify for leave under the FMLA.  The proposed legislation is similar to H.R. 912, which I discussed in a prior blog, and which passed the House by voice vote on February 9th.
