The current Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA) forms, which are used to certify whether employees are eligible to take leave and to notify them of their leave rights, will expire June 30.
A recent SHRM article quotes attorneys who suggest the forms aren’t likely to change much and employers who customize their own FMLA forms shouldn’t be concerned with the replacements.
The forms were originally expected to expire at the end of May, but the Department of Labor (DOL) is renewing the current documents on a month-to-month basis until the new ones are finalized.
The last changes to the forms were made in 2015, when the DOL made a few minor tweaks to comply with the Genetic Information Nondiscrimination Act.
HR Services will update our template forms as soon as new forms are approved and notify members of any changes made.
