DOL Issues Question and Answer Publication Concerning Pandemic Flu and FMLA

Recently, the Department of Labor (DOL) issued a Question and Answer publication concerning Pandemic Flu and the FMLA.  While the publication does not change the analysis concerning whether an employee is eligible for FMLA leave, it suggests that the DOL is evaluating whether the current FMLA regulations need to be amended to address a severe influenza pandemic. 

Of course, should the regulations be amended, I will update this blog immediately.
