The U.S. Supreme Court has let stand a lower-court ruling that minimizes the impact when an employer fails to notify a worker promptly that he is ineligible for time off under theAct. ( ). (Brungart v. Bellsouth Telecom Inc., No. 00-1383)
Labor Department regulations have said an employer's failure to notify a worker promptly would automatically make that person eligible for the FMLA. But a federal appeals court struck down the rules, saying they would stretch the law far beyond what Congress intended.
- Two laws, one condition: ADA disability doesn't necessarily warrant FMLA leave
- Does the FMLA cover leave for 'stress'?
- The Genetic Information Nondiscrimination Act finally becomes law
- Cutting an employee's pay is perfectly legal, but first review his potential for a bias lawsuit
- Can a New Mom Demand Part-Time Schedule?
