(New York, March 22) In her welcoming remarks to the 10th Annual Gay and Lesbian Business Expo at the Javits Convention Center today, Congresswoman Carolyn B. Maloney (D-Manhattan & Queens) announced that she had re-introduced federal legislation to include domestic partners and other relationships under the terms of the Family and Medical Leave Act. Enacted in 1993, the landmark legislation protects employees who need time off from work to care for a sick spouse, parent, or child from being subject to sanctions by their employers. The legislation applies to workers in companies with more than 50 employees. Congresswoman Maloney's amendment to the Act would expand the protections in the original law to domestic partners and others, including grandparents, siblings, and in-laws.
