Effective date for FMLA forms extended for employers
Implement new FMLA forms
Employers now have until June 30, 2018 to implement the U.S. Department of Labor’s new Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA) forms.
If your organization has not updated its forms with the new versions or where not aware of the change, the deadline has been extended through June 30.
What are these forms? The Department of Labor is required to submit FMLA forms to the Office of Management and Budget for approval every three years. The current forms were set to expire May 31, 2018. No other changes have been made to these notices, aside from the effective date.
