Get out your red pens and highlighters, draft regulations have been released! The Department of Family & Medical Leave page is now up: Regulations are here: DFML Regulations.pdf

My understanding, from what I have seen so far is that if employers are exempted then deductions are optional. I am placing a lot of weight on the words in the regulation (i.e. MAY, UP TO) so I might be surprised in the coming days. Like John, Jack and Glenn I am anxious for the regulations and the sessions next week!

Thanks for this info. Will be interesting to see what the draft regs look like. Once we digest the draft regs, we (New Balance) will be sure to send a rep to the Boston session on the 30th to put our "2 cents" in around how the regs could be improved, unless, of course, they deliver perfect regs :)

The MS FMLA contribution rate breakdown will be important for analysis, corporate expense forecasting and workforce communications. Given the sheer volume of eligible employees and employers contributing to the pool clarity on the supporting administrative structure and process also top of mind important.
