MY BOSS SAYS . . . I haven't worked long enough to get FMLA leave. What are the rules?

Sometimes a serious health condition comes up and employees need to take off from work to deal with their own condition or that of a parent, spouse, or child. The Family and Medical Leave Act ("FMLA") was enacted to protect employees in this situation. Under the FMLA, employers must provide 12 unpaid weeks of leave per year to qualified employees. While an employee is taking that leave, the employer must protect the employee's job and must continue his or her health insurance. But certain rules apply - not every employee is protected by the FMLA.

MY BOSS SAYS . . . I'll be eligible for overtime at the end of the year due to new rules. What do the new rules say?

The Department of Labor has issued its final rule updating overtime regulations, which will automatically extend overtime pay protections to over 4 million workers within the first year of implementation.
