On Sep. 4, 2018, the DOL released the updated FMLA forms, signaling the Office of Management and Budget’s (OMB) three-year approval of the forms and notices used to manage the FMLA. As background, these forms were scheduled to expire on May 31, 2018. However, the DOL requested 30-day extensions until the OMB approved the forms. (We discussed the pending OMB approval in the June 12, 2018 edition of Compliance Corner.)
As we mentioned before, the DOL submitted the forms to the OMB back in April and requested a three-year extension to the forms in their current layout (that is, they requested no changes). Since the OMB has formally approved the forms, they are now set to expire on Aug. 31, 2021.
Employers should utilize the updated forms and notices.
