Q. I am wondering where to go to find information on FMLA, the Family and Medical Leave Act.
If you are looking for the Family Medical Leave Act as it appears in the U.S. Code, use the legal database, FastCase, to access the current version of the law. FastCase can be accessed through the Rasmussen College Online Library or by clicking in the Resources tab in any online class (click on the "Search eResources" link to connect to the Databases A-Z List.)
Once in FastCase, click on the Search Statutes link on the left side of the page.
Next, select U.S. Code from the jurisdiction menu at the bottom of the page and type "Family and Medical Leave" in the search textbox and click search.
Click on the titles in the results list to view statutes in full text.
If you're looking for information that discussed FMLA, we suggest the following:
- From the Unites State Department of Labor: Family and Medical Leave
- Also from the United State Department of Labor: Fact Sheet #28, The Family and Medical Leave Act of 1993
- From the Wage and Hour Division of the United State Department of Labor: Family and Medical Leave Act Poster
eBooks and reference works,
If you're researching the impact of FMLA on individuals or on the workplace, you may find what you're looking for in magazine and journal articles, also available on our library page. We suggest these databases:
