Recently, the United States Department of Labor (DOL) issued an opinion letter addressing whether an employee may take leave under the Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA) to attend a meeting to discuss the Individualized Education Program (IEP) of the employee’s child. In the situation posed to the DOL, an employee had two children with qualifying serious health conditions under the FMLA, and whose doctor had provided proper certification supporting the need for intermittent care for the children. The employer approved the employee’s intermittent leave under FMLA to bring her children to medical appointments. However, the employer denied the employee’s request to take FMLA leave to attend the children’s IEP meetings. The DOL determined that the employer violated the FMLA.More on DOL's IEP Decision Letter Here >
The Indian Child Welfare Act of 1978 (ICWA) was enacted to address the high rates of Indian children being separated from their Indian families and Indian communities. The stated intent of Congress under ICWA was to “protect the best interests of Indian children and to promote stability and security of Indian tribes and families.” (25 USC § 1902) Recent years have seen an increased number of challenges to various provisions of ICWA and parallel state statutes in both federal and state court lawsuits.

Animal lovers will claim their beloved furry friends are irreplaceable, unlike getting a credit for your interest in a house, pension, or a portion of a bank account. Moreover, pet insurance rarely covers all of the medical expenses associated with pets. Read More on Pet Custody Here >
