A revised Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA) poster, reflecting the recently published final rule, is now available for viewing and downloading. Every employer covered by the FMLA is required to post and keep posted on its premises, in conspicuous places where employees are employed, a notice explaining the Act’s provisions.
The FMLA applies to any employer with 50 or more employees working within a 75-mile radius.
The DOL has also provided optional forms for use by employers and employees during the FMLA process. The DOL revised its Certification of Health Care Provider form (WH-380), and divided it into two separate forms for an Employee’s Serious Health Condition (WH-380E) and a Family Member’s Serious Health Condition (WH-380F). The DOL also revised its Notice of Eligibility and Rights and Responsibilities form (WH-381).
In addition, the DOL added new forms for Designation Notice to Employee of FMLA Leave (WH-382), Certification of Qualifying Exigency for Military Family Leave (WH-384), and Certification for Serious Injury or Illness of Covered Servicemember for Military Family Leave (WH-385).
The poster and forms become effective on January 16, 2009. Additional compliance assistance materials are also available on FMLA Final Rule Web site at www.dol.gov/esa/whd/fmla/finalrule.htm.Sayar Fausto, LLP
