U.S. Department of Labor Releases Updated FMLA Forms
The Department of Labor (DOL) has updated the FMLA forms which expired on May 31, 2018. The DOL is required to submit its FMLA forms every three years to the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) for approval. The forms were last approved in 2015.
After expiration, they were extended on a month-to-month basis while OMB considered a three-year extension. OMB has approved the forms for three years, until August 2021. The only change to the forms is the expiration date. Nonetheless, employers who are using the forms should now use the new forms, which can be accessed on the DOL website. Here are the links to the forms with the new expiration dates.
