On June 22, the Wage and Hour Division of the U.S. Department of Labor issued Administrator’s Interpretation No. 2010-3 to clarify the definition of “son or daughter” under the Family and Medical Leave Act as it relates to “a child of a person standing in loco parentis.”  The new guidance provides that an employee may be eligible for child-related FMLA leave even if there is no biological or legal relationship between the employee and child.
