The U.S. Department of Labor (DOL) recently issued new model notices and certification forms (FMLA forms), which can be used by employers to administer the federal Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA) and fulfill the FMLA notice obligations. These forms are not mandatory and employers may choose to use their own forms or prior versions of these forms. The DOL has stated that the forms were revised to be clearer and more user-friendly for employers, leave administrators, health care providers, and employees. The new forms feature a number of “checkboxes” rather than requiring written responses. Additionally, certain topics are now more detailed, including employee eligibility and rights and responsibilities, leave designations, and medical information.
The key revisions to the new forms are summarized below and the new model FMLA forms are available here
