Library of Congress Summary
The summary below was written by the Congressional Research Service, which is a nonpartisan division of the Library of Congress.
Military Family Leave Act of 2012 - Entitles an employed family member of a member of the Armed Forces who receives notification of a call or order to active duty in support of a contingency operation, or who is deployed in connection with a contingency operation, to two workweeks of leave per year for each family member who is so called or deployed.
Allows such leave to:
(1) be taken intermittently or on a reduced leave schedule; and
(2) consist of paid or unpaid leave, as the employer considers appropriate.
Allows an employer to require certification of entitlement to such leave within a leave request.
Provides employment and benefits protection for employees upon their return from such leave.
Prohibits an employer from interfering with or otherwise denying the exercise of such leave rights.
House Republican Conference Summary
The summary below was written by the House Republican Conference, which is the caucus of Republicans in the House of Representatives.
No summary available.
House Democratic Caucus Summary
The House Democratic Caucus does not provide summaries of bills.
So, yes, we display the House Republican Conference’s summaries when available even if we do not have a Democratic summary available. That’s because we feel it is better to give you as much information as possible, even if we cannot provide every viewpoint.
We’ll be looking for a source of summaries from the other side in the meanwhile.
