New FMLA Forms!

Hot off the presses - new 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 Covered Servicemember -- for Military Family Leave *
  • WH-385-V Certification for Serious Injury or Illness of a Veteran for Military Caregiver Leave *

  • * Notes that the form is marked as Revised February 2013.

    Of course, you shouldn't need me to tell you when new forms come out. Instead, go to DOL's Family and Medical Leave Act page whenever you need a form. That way, you'll be sure you're using the latest and official form. There are few areas of employment law in which the government just tells you "here's a form that works - use this one!" Take advantage of it when it's available.
