Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA) Poster

The US DOL revised the Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA) poster in April 2016.  All covered employers are required to display the FMLA poster, which summarizes the major provisions of the FMLA and explains the complaint process.  The FMLA poster was revised to be more reader friendly.  At this time, the February 2013 version may still be used to fulfill the posting requirement.  The US DOL has also released an Employer Guide for the purpose of assisting employers by providing pertinent information about the FMLA, employer obligations and the options available to employers when administering the FMLA.
