The FMLA represents the first federal law that guarantees employees the right to take leaves to care for newborn children, adopted children, and seriously ill family members. It also allows employees to take leaves needed due to their own serious health conditions. The law usually requires employers to maintain health insurance benefits in effect, continue life and disability insurance, allow the use of vacation and sick leave benefits, and comply with numerous other rules. These rules regulate employee handbooks, written notice, record-keeping, and posting requirements. It also establishes serious sanctions and penalties that can be imposed against employers who do not comply. In this publication, Attorney Richard J. Simmons of Sheppard, Mullin, Richter & Hampton LLP, provides employers a guide through the complicated web of rules created by the law.
