Once an employee has a FMLA certification does the Department of Labor (DOL) allow the employer to request re-certification?

| 07/04/2017 |

Yes, you may request a new certification every 30 days, but not more frequently unless there is a change in the employee’s condition. If the health care provider puts the employee out for more than 30 days, you may request recertification only after that time expires. A recent DOL opinion letter states that you can request a new recertification annually.
