On Nov. 17, the U.S. Department of Labor finalized the first major overhaul of FMLA regulations in 15 years. Some changes favor employers; others will make FMLA compliance trickier than ever. They will require changes to your policies.

Among the regulation changes: new leave rights for military families, revised definition of a qualifying “serious condition” and new employer and employee notice obligations. Also, employers will be able to contact physicians directly to clarify details on employees’ FMLA certification forms. The rules take effect Jan. 16.
