  • President George W. Bush signed legislation amending the Family and Medical Leave Act ("FMLA") for the first time since its passage in 1993, extending the benefits provided by allowing families of injured members of the Armed Forces to take unpaid leave. Employers should provide notice to employees of the changes to the FMLA and make every effort to comply with these new provisions.
