Request for Information on the Family and Medical Leave Act of 1993; Extension of Comment Period
This notice extends the period for comments to be submitted on the request for information (``RFI'') published on December 1, 2006 (71 FR 69504) related to the Family and Medical Leave Act of 1993 (the ``FMLA'' or the ``Act''). That request for information invites the public to provide information to the Department of Labor (``Department'') to assist in its consideration and review of the Department's administration of the Act and the implementing regulations. The Department has received inquiries regarding the possibility of extending the comment period, particularly since the RFI was published in December and part of the comment period fell over the holidays. The comment period, which was to expire on February 2, 2007, is hereby extended 14 days to February 16, 2007 at 5 p.m. (EST).
