Many of my peers in both firms and corporate HR consider Mike's book as the authoritative guide to FMLA in Texas.


 ~Liz D'aloia, JD, Office Depot, Inc.

More and more employees are exercising their FMLA rights by taking time off from work to start a family, take care of aging parents or for personal health reasons. Most employees are covered under the Family & Medical Leave Act, but do you know what rules have changed that affect coverage?


Written by Michael P. Maslanka of Ford & Harrison LLP, Maslanka's Field Guide to the Family & Medical Leave Act, 2d and its commentary will facilitate a better understanding of:

  • how complying with the FMLA can cause an employer to violate the ADA
  • the rights and obligations of both employees and employers as more employees use FMLA leave for both their own conditions and those of close family members
  • the crucial differences between FMLA retaliation claims and interference claims and how to litigate each
  • key points in drafting of employee handbooks and policies


All with an emphasis on Fifth Circuit and Texas cases.
