“When you or a loved one experience a serious health condition that requires you to take time off from work, you might be eligible for FMLA,” said Rachel Brauner, AgriLife Extension program specialist in College Station. “Whether you are unable to work because of your own serious health condition, or because you need to care for your parent, spouse or child with a series health condition, FMLA provides unpaid, job-protected leave. Leave may be taken all at once or intermittently as the medical condition requires.”
Brauner said this training will provide an overview of how FMLA may benefit caregivers, and it will identify leave provisions for military families.
The presenter will be Olivia Jones, senior analyst with the Division of Family and Medical Leave Act Office of Policy, U.S. Department of Labor Wage and Hour Division. Jones helps with the development of interpretative and other guidance on the application of the FMLA. This includes the development of regulations, Field Operations Handbook sections and opinion letters.
Most recently she served a project manager for The Employer’s Guide to the FMLA, a comprehensive resource created to assist employers in administering FMLA leave.
