New Forms for FMLA and Immigration.

Last week was a blockbuster when it comes to new government forms and notices relating to employment.

First, the U.S. Department of Labor has issued final regulations and an updated poster for the Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA), incorporating recent changes in the law, relating primarily to seldom-used military caregiver leave for a veteran, qualifying exigency leave for parental care and job-protected leave for airline personnel and flight crews. The poster is available here and every covered employer is now required to post the new notice, either physically or on the company intranet.

Second, the United States Citizenship and Immigration Service has issued a new I-9 form (linked here at new Two Page I-9) that all employers must use (with a 60-day grace period that started March 8, 2013).
