Amendment Chapter 2: “Finances, Employment, and Housing”
The FMLA (Family Medical Leave Act) does not mandate compensation by the employer during the 12 weeks leave of absence. Some employers offer some pay as part of the benefits they offer, but others do not.
VisionAware.org is now being run jointly by the American Foundation for the Blind and American Printing House for the Blind and is being updated. The website is still working fine, but the excellent search app called VisionConnect which allows you to search for vision loss resources in any zip code is now part of VisionAware.org rather than a separate App.
