Education Week;3/8/1989, Vol. 8 Issue 24, p21
The article reports that the U.S. House Education and Labor Committee may take on the account some changes in the family and medical leave act to address concerns raised by the National School Boards Association (NSBA). NSBA officials have argued that the proposed measure could interfere with leave policies designed to minimize disruptions in academic calendar. The measure would require employers to grant their workers of up to 10 weeks of unpaid leave every two years when someone is sick.
