A School Administrator's Guide to the Family and Medical Leave Act is a comprehensive, yet practical, reference for information and guidance to comply with the requirements of the Family and Medical Leave Act of 1993. It provides school administrators with the latest information to ensure that school policies and practices are up-to-date and it helps to manage leave and avoid costly legal violations. This guide includes school-centered examples and best practice recommendations. It will be of interest to all public and private school administrators.
An enormously useful and practical source on family and medical leave issues for school administrators and other executives. Best one-volume work on market.
Perhaps now, more than ever, the school administrator or business official must be equipped to deal with the personal lives of their employees—1993's Family and Medical Leave Act is at the forefront of this issue, but there has yet to be an informative and practical guide describing the ins and outs of this act as it relates to the school setting. That is, until now. Carl Bosland's text features the latest information and analysis that can save millions in legal violations and lawsuits. I commend Carl Bosland for this timely and much-needed book and urge all administrators to add The School Administrator's Guide to the Family and Medical Leave Act to their reference collections.

[Carl Bosland] has produced a comprehensive guidebook that enables school administrators to navigate the complex and often-confusing requirements of the Federal Medical Leave Act. The text permits administrators to find quick answers to the most frequently asked questions and to gain insight as to best practices. The text also discloses the manner in which FMLA overlaps and interacts with other federal and state laws. Moreover, through inclusion of highlighted illustrations, the author has provided practical examples of how the act applies to common situations found in most school settings. Thus, given the potent legal liabilities that FMLA has imposed on both schools and their administrators, this book serves as a much-needed reference to facilitate proper regulatory compliance.

School administrators across the nation will find this complete and comprehensive guide helpful in understanding both the language and the services as they make decisions for their education agencies and organizations.
