In June we alerted you to the pending revision of the federal Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA) forms. These forms, used to communicate and capture information from employees about their need for leave, expired in May. The Department of Labor received approval for new forms and has now released final versions. The only change is the expiration date, which is now August 31, 2021. We have posted them on our website for members to begin using:
September is the time for government contractors and subcontractors to file their VETS-4212 Report. This report is required of federal government contractors and subcontractors covered by the Vietnam Era Veterans’ Readjustment Act (VEVRAA) with a government contract or subcontract of $150,000 and more. The report contains organizational information on the number of protected veterans* in the workforce as well as the number of new hires who voluntarily self-identified as protected veterans.
The reports can be accessed at the VETS-4212 website now and filed online until September 30, 2018. The website also has FAQs to assist.
