Waiting for the DOL

With all due respect to the DOL:

  1. DOL forms to be used under FMLA would have expired at the end of last month, but they have been modified so they are now effective until March 31, 2015. Will new forms be published by March 31, 2015? If not, we recommend that you continue to use the current forms published by the DOL (which can be found on its website with the new expiration date).

  2. The EEOC has asked the DOL to modify its forms, among other reasons, to comply with GINA. The DOL forms do not include the appropriate GINA disclaimer. http://www.eeoc.gov/eeoc/foia/letters/2014/gina_fmla_forms_11_10.html
