DOL Releases New FMLA Model Forms
The U.S. Department of Labor (DOL) has released revised model Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA) forms to assist employers with administering employee requests for federal FMLA leave.
The only notable substantive change to the forms is on the certification of serious health condition forms (WH-380-E and WH 380-F), where the DOL has instructed the employee's health care provider to not provide information about genetic tests, or the manifestation of a disease or disorder in the employee's family, so that such information is not shared in violation of the Genetic Information Nondiscrimination Act.
The updated forms should be used by employers immediately to ensure continued compliance with the FMLA. The new forms expire on May 31, 2018 and can be found at the following link: http://www.dol.gov/whd/fmla/2013rule/militaryForms.htm
If you have any questions about the new FMLA forms or about FMLA compliance, please contact Kurt Graham at (616) 608-1144 or firstname.lastname@example.org or your Clark Hill Labor & Employment attorney.
