The Association of Flight Attendants-CWA (AFA) on Monday said that its president Veda Shook has taken part in the official announcement of the implementation of the Airline Flight Crew Family and Medical Leave Act.
Nearly 20 years after the Family Medical Leave Act (FMLA) was signed into law, flight attendants and other flight crews have been granted the same access to coverage which has benefited other working families.
The FMLA requires most employers to provide job-protected unpaid leave to employees who have worked 60% of a full-time schedule over a year, however courts and federal agencies defined the "full time schedule" as that of a traditional 40 hour work week, thereby excluding flight attendants whose schedules do not fall within the traditional 9-5 work day.
The Airline Flight Crew FMLA corrects this interpretation of the original legislation and extends coverage to flight crews.
