Exigency Leave now provides for short-notice deployment for military events and related activities, child care and school activities, financial and legal matters, counseling, post-deployment activities and additional activities as agreed upon by the employer and the employee.
Military Caregiver Leave now allows employees to take 26 weeks of FMLA leave in a 12-month period to care for an active duty or veteran family member. Previously, this only applied to active members of the Armed Forces. Family members can use this leave any time for up to 5 years after the veteran leaves military service. Congress also extended the law to include those who had injuries or illnesses that existed before active duty but were aggravated while in the line of duty.
Since the new law went into effect with the President's signature, companies not in compliance are currently in violation. The President also signed an executive order in November requiring every government agency to promote veterans' employment opportunities. These agencies had 120 days to create a veteran employment plan.
Broadspire's Veterans Reintegration program helps ensure adherence to every federal guideline by providing the proper support for returning soldiers and presenting them with the opportunities they were fighting to protect and is a model for other employers.
