FMLA: New Forms, New Posters
Effective March 8, 2013, the Department of Labor has new updated notice and certification forms and a new poster requirement concerning the FMLA. The notice and certification forms are no longer available as part of the regulations, but rather will be on the DOL website. Also, there are new updated forms concerning serious injury or illness of a covered veteran. The new poster can be found here, and the new forms can be found here. DOL's new regulations also reference the Genetic Information Nondiscrimination Act of 2008 (GINA). Employers can disclose genetic information or family history obtained by the employers as long as it is consistent with the FMLA.
