USDOL Releases New FMLA Forms

Printer-friendly version

The federal DOL has posted new model FMLA notices on their website. There were very few changes made to the forms.  There is a new expiration date of 5/31/2018.  Additionally, in the instructions to the health care provider on the certification for an employee’s serious health condition, the DOL has added the following simple instruction:

Do not provide information about genetic tests, as defined in 29 C.F.R. § 1635.3(f), genetic services, as defined in 29 C.F.R. § 1635.3(e), or the manifestation of disease or disorder in the employee’s family members, 29 C.F.R. § 1635.3(b).

Copies of the new forms can be accessed at the EANJ or DOL Websites.
