The FMLA Handbook

The FMLA Handbook, by union attorney Robert M. Schwartz, explains the rights of employees under the Family and Medical Leave Act of 1993 (FMLA), including:

- The right to be absent for up to sixty days each year if you are unable to work because of a serious health condition.

- The right to be absent to care for a family member such as a parent with a stroke, a husband who suffers a nervous breakdown, or a child who is too ill to go to school.

- The right to take twelve weeks leave for child birth, adoption, or in order to care for a child under one year of age.

This book is highly readable, illustrated with numerous examples, questions and answers, sample letters, union pointers, and legal citations. It provides practical explanations of U.S. Department of Labor regulations, and cotains special chapters on grievance handling and contract bargaining.
