Abstract

[Excerpt] To assist Congress in evaluating proposals to expand or limit the availability of FMLA leave, this report uses data from two household surveys. The Annual Social and Economic (ASEC) supplement to the monthly Current Population Survey (CPS) is used to estimate the number of employees who may or may not be eligible for FMLA leave. Data from a 2012 survey conducted for the U.S. Department of Labor (DOL) are used to compare the use of leave for FMLA-related reasons by employees who may or may not be eligible for leave.
