Agenda for Human Resources

How-To: FMLA Certifications

  • The brand-new forms! How to make sure you are using the correct ones. Why? Because they are newly redesigned to make it easier for doctors and other medical providers to provide just the information you need - not more or, as is common with older forms, too little -  for you to make an informed decision.
  • Don’t agree with the certification? Learn when and why you should request a second or third opinion and what to do with those if they conflict.
  • Intermittent leave. Learn exactly how often you need to re-certify intermittent leave - including intermittent paid FMLA leave for COVID-19 related reasons.
  • FMLA abuse. Find out what you should do if you think a worker is abusing FMLA leave. Hint: It involves recertification as well as verifying the employee is actually off work for the reason she says.
  • Return-to-work. It’s tricky. Find out what form you need to have completed and what limits there are on the information you request.
  • Forms walk-through. We will go through each form, including the FMLA notices you must complete and what the employee’s completed forms should look like.

Interactive Q&A time included
