Family and Medical Leave Act

Department of Labor Online Interactive Advisor Offers Updated Information on Family and Medical Leave Act

The U.S. Department of Labor recently released an updated version of its Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA) Advisor. This online resource helps clarify which employers are required to provide FMLA leave as well as which employees are eligible to take such leave. In addition, it outlines valid reasons for leave and employer and employee notice requirements and other responsibilities under the law.

You may access the updated Family and Medical Leave Act Advisor from the DOL web site at:

The Family and Medical Leave Act is a Federal law that entitles eligible employees of covered employers to take unpaid, job-protected leave for specified reasons with continuation of group health insurance coverage under the same terms and conditions as if they had not taken leave. Examples of specified reasons include caring for a newborn or recently adopted child or a family member with a serious health condition, or an employee’s own serious health condition.

Packing Tips For Flight Attendants

Packing Tips For Flight Attendants

Packing Tips For Flight Attendants

Pack Light!

  • Choosing a wardrobe of basics for your layover will help you deal with space limitations. Select clothes that will coordinate with each other.
  • Try to stick to one color scheme (black/brown/navy) or select clothes that can be mixed and matched.
  • Bring clothing that requires little care … wrinkle-resistant, quick drying fabrics.
  • Check seasonal weather conditions where you will be traveling and be prepared.
  • To save space and weight, prepare a kit of miniature toiletries in small plastic bottles. Don't fill bottles to the top, because the pressure may cause contents to expand. Pack bottles in plastic bags should there be leakage.
  • As an alternative, many stores sell travel size toiletries, which are small and do not use up excessive space.

Pack Tight!

  • Pack tightly. Packing loosely wastes precious space and causes clothes to wrinkle.
  • Pack heavy items on the bottom of the suitcase to avoid wrinkles.
  • You may also want to stuff any packed shoes with underwear or socks to save space, or prevent them from being crushed during your travels.
  • Roll pajamas, nightgowns, sweaters and other casual wear to fill small spaces, when possible, BUT don't cram your suitcase full. If you have to force your luggage closed, remove a few items to prevent broken hinges or zippers along the way.
  • Try the "interweaving method" of packing for your next trip. Drape longer garments such as dresses and pants across the suitcase with the ends hanging over the sides. Then, fold shorter items such as jackets, shirts and blouses around the longer garments so that they cushion each other.

Identification Reminder!

  • Be sure to include your name and domicile on a tag fastened securely to the outside of your luggage. You may also want to identify your luggage on the inside with your name, address, telephone number and domicile.
