employee’s health care provider.
Employer name and contact: ________________________________________________________________________________________
Employee’s job title: ____________________________________________ Regular work schedule: ______________________________
SECTION II: For Completion by the EMPLOYEE
INSTRUCTIONS to the EMPLOYEE: Please complete Section II before giving this form to your medical provider. The FMLA permits an
employer to require that you submit a timely, complete, and sufficient medical certification to support a request for FMLA leave due to your
own serious health condition. If requested by your employer, your response is required to obtain or retain the benefit of FMLA protections.
Failure to provide a complete and sufficient medical certification may result in a denial of your FMLA request. It is your responsibility to
ensure that the health care provider returns the completed form to you or Employee Health 205.996.9274 within 15 calendar days of

INSTRUCTIONS to the HEALTH CARE PROVIDER: Your patient has requested leave under the FMLA. Answer, fully and completely, all
applicable parts. Several questions seek a response as to the frequency or duration of a condition, treatment, etc. Your answer should be
your best estimate based upon your medical knowledge, experience, and examination of the patient. Be as specific as you can; terms such
as “lifetime,” “unknown,” or “indeterminate” may not be sufficient to determine FMLA coverage. Limit your responses to the condition for
which the employee is seeking leave. Do not provide information about genetic tests, genetic services, or the manifestation of disease or
disorder in the employee’s family members. Please be sure to sign the form on the last page.
