U.S. Office of Professional Management Issues Proposed Regulations Implementing Military Family Leave under the FMLA for Federal Employees

On August 26, 2009, the U.S. Office of Professional Management issued proposed regulations implementing military family leave under the FMLA  for federal employees.  The proposed regulations would provide eligible federal employees up to 26 administrative workweeks of leave under the FMLA to care for a member of the Armed Forces, including a member of the National Guard or Reserves, who is injured in the line of duty while on active duty; amend the rules on advancing sick leave; and make organizational changes to the existing sick leave and FMLA regulations to enhance reader understanding and administration of these programs. 

Comments must be received on or before October 26, 2009.
