FMLA and WFMLA PROVISIONS

 


The Office of State Employment Relations (OSER) developed a side-by-side comparison of FMLA and WFMLA provisions that outline all facets of both programs and which program is more generous. The employee is always eligible to receive the more generous provision. The Department of Workforce Development also provides a comparison guide and FAQ on their website.


The U.S. Department of Labor (DOL) summarizes all FMLA provisions in Fact Sheet #28: The Family and Medical Leave Act of 1993. The DOL also has a website dedicated to the FMLA and a FMLA poster that must be posted by the employer.
The Department of Workforce Development outlines WFMLA provisions in Equal Rights Publication ERD-8007-P (Spanish version) and provides a WFMLA poster that must be posted by the employer.


UW System Administration General Counsel's website outlines WFMLA and FMLA provisions (includes links to an FAQ and slide show presentation).


The full text of the FMLA Final Rule can be found in 29 CFR Part 825 (the actual Act begins on page 141 of the PDF). The WFMLA was created by Wis. Stats. §103.10 and its implementation is outlined in Wis. Admin. Code Ch. DWD 225.
