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.

[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. -- Robert J. Martin, Ed.D., J.D., LL.M., professor and director, Center of State and Local Government Law, Seton Hall University School of Law, and former chair, Senate
