DOL extends the use of its expired model FMLA forms and certifications.


U.S. Department of Labor Extends the Use of Existing FMLA Model Forms

For those of you who are fortunate enough to administer FMLA for your organization, you may have noticed that model FMLA forms issued by the U.S. Department of Labor (DOL) expired on May 31, 2018. Have no fear: The expiration date has been extended to June 30, 2018 and will continue to be extended on a month-to-month basis while the federal Office of Management and Budget (OMB) reviews the DOL request to renew the forms, with or without any changes. (Under federal law, the DOL is required to submit the FMLA forms to OMB for approval every three years). So, all employers need to do is make sure to use the forms with the latest expiration date and check back the first of each month for the latest expiration date until the OMB approves new three-year forms.

Note: The date at the bottom of each of the current DOL’s model FMLA forms reflects the last revision date of each form, and not the effective date.
