Family Medical Leave Act – Changes on Forms

Family Medical Leave Act – Changes on Forms

The Department of Labor has finally replaced the expired FMLA forms. The only substantive changes are the new expiration date and a reference to the Genetic Information Nondiscrimination Act (GINA). Under GINA, if an employer provides a safe harbor notice with the request for medical information, any disclosure of genetic information when responding to an FMLA request is inadvertent and does not violate GINA.

The new forms (identified below) can be located at: http://www.dol.gov/whd/fmla/

WH-380-E Certification of Health Care Provider for Employee’s Serious Health Condition

WH-380-F Certification of Health Care Provider for Family Member’s Serious Health Condition

WH-384 Certification of Qualifying Exigency For Military Family Leave
