The Women’s Legal Defense Fund will hold a press conference and forum on February 5th at the Dirksen Senate Office Building, Room 430, to celebrate and revisit the signing of Clinton’s first law of his administration, the Family and Medical Leave Act. Senators Dodd, Murray and Daschle will hold a press conference from 10:00 to 10:30 a.m. to celebrate the Act’s four year anniversary. The Women’s Legal Defense Fund will hold a forum entitled, "Expanding the Family and Medical Leave Act: Building on Four Years of Success" from 10:30 to 12:30.

To commemorate the anniversary, WLDF is releasing a new edition of its consumer-friendly Guide to the Family and Medical Leave Act: Questions and Answers with explanations of how the law applies in a variety of situations. The Guide is $3.95 and can be ordered through WLDF.
