There are differing schools of thought about the Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA). Some feel that the FMLA has gone too far, while others advocate for extending the reach of the FMLA because the Act does not provide enough coverage or does not properly compensate those taking the leave.
- What are some of the advantages and disadvantages of FMLA?
- What is one rule/modification to the FMLA that would make the law more “employee-friendly” and yet, at the same time, NOT be overly costly and/or restrict an organization?
NOTE: The cost of additional taxes and employee benefits raise the price of U.S. products and services, which can impact an organization’s ability to compete internationally. Does your proposal raise the price of U.S. products and services? If so, will some organizations be unable to compete internationally? If not, how will the new rule/modification be paid for? All of these factors should be considered when forming your post.
