FMLA Targeted Compliance: Qualifying Basis for FMLA Leave

Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA) leave may be taken for an employee’s own serious health condition, for the serious health condition of certain family members, for the birth, adoption or foster placement of a child, for a qualifying exigency (related to family members in the military), and to care for a military servicemember. Employees do not have to specifically use the word “FMLA” when requesting leave, but they must provide sufficient verbal notice to make you aware that they need FMLA-qualifying leave, and the anticipated timing and duration of the leave. For unforeseeable leave, employees only need to provide sufficient information for you to reasonably determine whether the FMLA may apply to the leave request.

Transportation Safety Topics: Near Misses

You’re driving down the interstate; you have a bright sunny day, dry road and moderate to light traffic. There’s relaxing music on the radio, you’re actually a little ahead of schedule for a change and everything is right with the world. Suddenly, “from out of nowhere,” this red vehicle whips around you, hits the brakes and heads for the shoulder of the highway. You have to hit the brakes and steer around them to avoid a collision and they have just ruined your peaceful day. Question, is that the first time that or a similar event has ever happened to you? Probably not, and for certain it won’t be the last. That is what we call a NEAR MISS.

PEP Talk: Internships under FLSA

Like many organizations, Gallagher employs student interns who are college students working through their summer break. Recent court rulings on the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) and advice from the Department of Labor (DOL), in response to a request from the American Bar Association (ABA), have affected the way that internships are managed by our company — and they may apply to your public sector operations, as well.
