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.
