I can’t imagine anything more exciting than having joined Littler earlier this year. [Click here to read about that virtual love fest.]
But I have found a close second: the arrival of the American Bar Association’s summary of every FMLA case decided in 2018!
Yep, you read that correctly. Every little scrumptious FMLA decision.
About mid-February or so, the ABA’s Federal Labor Standards Legislation Committee publishes a comprehensive report of FMLA decisions handed down by the federal courts in the previous year. [Those little ABA rascals kept it from me this year till March, but I finally found it today.] Although our little FMLA blog catches some of the big FMLA cases as they occur throughout the year, the ABA’s annual report includes all FMLA decisions from this past year. This year’s report is as comprehensive as always — it summarizes 2018 FMLA decisions in a user-friendly manner and is a great reference for me throughout the year.
The report can be accessed here (pdf). I encourage you to print it off and keep it by your side as a valuable FMLA resource.
