On February 11, 2008, the U.S. Department of Labor proposed updates to the FMLA regulations for all families that Alaska employers should be aware of.
The FMLA (Family and Medical Leave Act) of 1993 provides unpaid, job-protected leave for Alaska employees to care for a sick child, parent or spouse, or for their own serious illness. FMLA also allows workers to take leave for childbirth, and after adoption or fostering of a new child.
The NDAA, or National Defense Authorization Act of 2008 expands FMLA leave to 26 weeks for families of certain military members. The law went into effect immediately, providing leave to since January 28, 2008. For non-military families, the current FMLA rules remain in effect until April 11, 2008.
Assistant Secretary of Employment Standards Administration, Victoria A. Lipnic, said, “This proposal preserves workers’ family and medical leave rights while improving the administration of FMLA by fostering better communication in the workplace. It also implements a law President Bush recently signed to extend family and medical leave to families of America’s soldiers who are suffering serious illness or injury.”
The expanded FMLA rules consist of several changes. The most important are employer notice obligations, employee notice obligations and updated rules for Military Family Leave.
Previous to the implementation of the new rules, employees could take unscheduled days off and had up to two days to report the absence as FMLA leave. The lack of notice caused problems for employers by disrupting normal operations. Under the new rules, workers must follow the “usual and customary” procedures for reporting absences.
The second major change imposes increased notice requirements for companies to ensure that workers understand their FMLA rights. Instead of two business days, employers will now have five business days to send eligibility notices to their employees.
If the employee’s medical certification is insufficient or incomplete, companies must inform the employee in writing exactly what information is lacking. The worker has seven days to respond. The rule helps prevent denial of FMLA leave because of a technicality.
Change number three allows, under the NDAA, military families to take up to 26 weeks of unpaid job-protected leave.
More Alaska FMLA Changes
On February 11, 2008, the U. S. Department of Labor published several suggested changes to the regulations for FMLA (Family and Medical Leave Act).
The U. S. Department of Labor states that the proposed changes will better facilitate communication between workers, healthcare providers and employers. In addition, these changes take into account several rulings by the U. S. Supreme Court and lower courts that affect the FMLA.
One of these court rulings is the Ragsdale Decision. In Ragsdale, a worker who had already taken 30 weeks of paid leave was denied additional unpaid FMLA leave. The U.S. Department of Labor sued the employer and sought a penalty for not awarding the FMLA leave. The U. S. Supreme Court ruled in Ragsdale vs. Wolverine World Wide, Inc. that in some cases, workers who had already taken more than 12 weeks of paid leave may not be eligible for an additional 12 weeks of FMLA leave. The ruling further explained that employees are entitled to a total of 12 weeks of unpaid leave, and those who’ve already taken 12 or more weeks of leave, paid or unpaid, are not entitled to penalties.
The changes to FMLA will go into final effect on April 11, 2008. Until that time, employers are encouraged to comment on the recommended changes by visiting http://www.regulations.gov. Once on the site, type the keywords “Family and Medical Leave Act” (in quotes) and post the comment. Note that the comments will be viewable by the public.
It’s important that employers order their 2008 Alaska labor law posters soon. Both state and federal law require that the updated posters be displayed.
During 2007 many changes occurred to labor laws. As 2007 comes to an end, employers will need to update their labor law posters. Alaska employers are affected by these changes, and need to be aware of them.
Under state law, the officially required 2008 Alaska labor law posters are:
OSHA – Health and Safety Protection
Workers’ Compensation Insurance
By law every Alaska employer is required to display these posters.
In addition, under federal law, employers must display these posters:
USERRA – Uniformed Services Employment and Reemployment Rights Act
Equal Employment Opportunity is the Law
Federal Minimum Wage
Employee Polygraph Protection Act
Family and Medical Leave Act
OSHA-Job Safety & Health Protection
A large number of changes over the year influenced the poster requirements. The Fair Minimum Wage Act of 2007 increased the federal minimum wage for the first time in close to a decade. Seventy cents was added to $5.15 to raise the minimum to $5.85 per hour. A number of states that connect their minimum wages to the federal minimum raised their minimum wages on that day, too.
These states will increase their minimum wage again in 2008 when the federal minimum gets another 70 cent boost. On July 24, 2008, the federal minimum will go from $5.85 to $6.55. The states that bumped their minimum wage with the previous federal increase will bump their minimum wage again.
Other states across the country enacted an increase to their state minimum wage during 2007. Maine, North Dakota, South Dakota and New Hampshire are among them.
Minimum wage wasn’t the only law that changed during 2007. Two states established new no-smoking bans.
Illinois’s new law banned smoking in almost every work environment, including casinos, restaurants and bars. In Ohio, a tough new ban on smoking at work was also enacted. Businesses were then required to post new no-smoking signs at all entrances.
Alaska amended its Child Labor Laws regarding the buying and selling of cigarettes. The law already prohibited anyone under the age of 19 from buying cigarettes, but concern arose regarding teens working in gas stations and convenience stores that sell cigarettes. Part of the concern was that these teens when unsupervised might sell cigarettes to friends who were underage. The law was changed, therefore, to also prohibit anyone under the age of 19 from selling cigarettes.
All of the changes that occurred during 2007, and those slated to occur in 2008 will require employers to update their labor law posters. If the posters are not updated, the employer could be fined.
More than a dozen states will increase their minimum wages on January 1, 2008. These include Delaware, Oregon, Washington, California, Florida, Iowa, New Mexico, Massachusetts, Vermont, Colorado, Arizona, Missouri, Montanan and Ohio. The lowest rate to be increased is in Montana, where the state minimum wage will increase from $6.15 per hour to $6.26. In Missouri and New Mexico, the state rate will go to $6.50.
After the increase, the nation’s highest minimum wage will be in Washington state, where the minimum wage will be $8.07 per hour. Both California and Massachusetts plan increases to $8.00 per hour, while the state rate in Oregon goes to $7.95.
Both state and federal law require that every employer prominently display the posters in an area where they can been seen by every employee. Popular locations are a bulletin board, near the time clock or in the break room.
The most common reason for employers to update posters includes statute changes, especially to minimum wage laws. In just the past few months, employers in New Hampshire, Nevada and Maine have updated their labor law posters as the state minimum wages changed. The most recent increase was on October 1, 2007 when the New Hampshire minimum wage increased to $6.50 per hour.
