The nation now has two decades of experience with the Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA). That experience — including both employer workplace practices and employee leave taking patterns — was described by earlier surveys of worksites and employees conducted by the Department of Labor in 1995 and in 2000. In 2012, Abt Associates conducted a third pair of surveys for the Department of Labor.
