Weekly HR News – FMLA
Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA) Forms
FMLA forms are required for notifying employees of their rights and responsibilities, certification of leave based on the specific request and designating FMLA leave by the employer. The forms that must be used are located on the Department of Labor (DOL) web page.
For easier reference, here are the links to the current FMLA forms:
- 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-381 Notice of Eligibility and Rights & Responsibilities
- WH-382 Designation Notice
- WH-384 Certification of Qualifying Exigency for Military Family Leave
- WH-385 Certification for Serious Injury or Illness of Current Service Member for Military Family Leave
- WH-385-V Certification for Serious Injury or Illness of a Veteran for Military Caregiver Leave
In addition to the DOL required forms listed above, many employers have their own additional forms that deal with the employee’s request for FMLA, medical updates and return to work.
All FMLA forms and information about an employee’s FMLA leave and condition must be kept confidential and separate from other employee files. It is an FMLA violation for an employer to share information about an employee’s FMLA leave with other employees.
