may require an employee seeking FMLA protections because of a need for leave due to a serious health condition to
submit a medical certification issued by the employee’s health care provider. Please complete Section I before giving
this form to your employee. Your response is voluntary. While you are not required to use this form, you may not ask
the employee to provide more information than allowed under the FMLA regulations, 29 C.F.R. §§ 825.306-825.308.
Employers must generally maintain records and documents relating to medical certifications, recertifications, or
medical histories of employees created for FMLA purposes as confidential medical records in separate files/records
from the usual personnel files and in accordance with 29 C.F.R. § 1630.14(c)(1), if the Americans with Disabilities
Act applies, and in accordance with 29 C.F.R. § 1635.9, if the Genetic Information Nondiscrimination Act applies.

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. 29 U.S.C. §§ 2613,
2614(c)(3). Failure to provide a complete and sufficient medical certification may result in a denial of your FMLA
request. 29 C.F.R. § 825.313. Your employer must give you at least 15 calendar days to return this form. 29 C.F.R.
§ 825.305(b).
Your name: __________________________________________________________________________________
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, as defined in 29
C.F.R. § 1635.3(f), genetic services, as defined in 29 C.F.R. § 1635.3(e), or the manifestation of disease or disorder
in the employee’s family members, 29 C.F.R. § 1635.3(b). Please be sure to sign the form on the last page.
