U.S. Department Issues Revised FMLA Notices and Certification Forms
News Release – July 22, 2020
The Department of Labor issued new prototype FMLA Notices and Certification Forms on July 16, 2020 after receiving “substantial public input.” Some of the forms were entirely reorganized and revamped, while others received less significant revisions. The DOL revised the introductory statements and instructions on the notices and forms to make them more aligned with the regulations and more consistent with each other, and added certain explanatory information (e.g., definitions of family members). Below is a summary of the more salient changes to each notice and certification form.
