New FMLA Forms Available
In recent days, the U.S. Department of Labor (DOL) published new forms recommended for administering the Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA). Since March 1, 2015, employers have been using forms that expired on February 28. The new forms can be found on DOL’s website.
The new forms are the same as the old forms, except for the addition of a reference to the Genetic Information Nondiscrimination Act (GINA) in the instructions to health care providers. The new instructions include information for health care providers that prohibit them from sharing information derived from genetic tests or diseases or disorders associated with an employee’s family members. The new forms are valid through May 31, 2018.
For more information on the FMLA, including guidance, fact sheets, posters and interpretive guidance, visit the DOL website. Information is also available on AGC’s Labor & HR Topical Resources webpage. The primary category is “Leave” and the secondary category is “Family and Medical Leave Act.”
