Editorial Reviews

Samuel Estreicher
An enormously useful and practical source on family and medical leave issues for school administrators and other executives. Best one-volume work on market.
John Musso
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.
Robert J. Martin
[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.
John E. Croot
I highly recommend Carl Bosland's A School Administrator's Guide to the Family and Medical Leave Act. This user-friendly work is both clearly written and truly comprehensive in scope. School administrators and attorneys are destined to pay Mr. Bosland the greatest compliment, they will refer to his Guide time and again.
Deke DeLoach
Carl Bosland has provided the most complete and up-to-date resource guide for human resource professionals faced with making the tough decisions concerning the often vague Family and Medical Leave Act. The depth of content, discussion of cases, and case citation will broaden the knowledge of seasoned attorneys representing clients covered by the Act. A School Administrator's Guide to the Family and Medical Leave Act is an absolute must for your reference library. I highly recommend it to labor attorneys and human resource professionals.
Richard S. Ugelow
Carl Bosland has produced a valuable resource for school administrators who are confronted with the day-to-day challenge of responding to employee requests for leave to deal with personal and family issues. This comprehensive primer, written by an experienced attorney, will assist administrators navigate the legal minefield created by the Family and Medical Leave Act. This book needs to be on the desk of every school administrator.
Jill S. Levy
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.
Marti Houser
Mr. Bosland's one-volume guide through the current maze of family and medical leave legislation, with emphasis on the federal Family and Medical Leave Act of 1993, is an easy-to-read, comprehensive desk reference that should find its way to every school administrator's bookshelf. Given the potential for serious damage awards against school districts for errors in granting and denying FMLA leave, today's administrators should not be without this invaluable source of information.
