The medical certification (also known as the Certification of Healthcare Provider) is an integral part of the Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA), yet it remains an area that many employers struggle with. When properly used, it is a valuable asset to employers, who can use it to determine whether the employee has a qualifying health condition, and whether that condition prevents them from performing the essential functions of their job. In this whitepaper, we will clarify the rights, responsibilities, and rules surrounding medical certifications, providing a resource you can consult to determine when and how you should ask for certification, what information you need to get, and how to confirm or clarify that information. We will note the key issues to watch out for and outline important timelines and deadlines.
