The Wage and Hour Division (WHD) of the Department of Labor (DOL) recently made updates to its Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA) notice and medical certification forms, which now carry an expiration date of May 31, 2018.

An additional update with these forms is the GINA (Genetic Information Nondiscrimination Act) Disclaimer or Instruction for Employers, which states:

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).”

If you own or operate a small to medium-sized business, managing all your employees plus meeting federal labor laws and regulations can be daunting, especially with new rules being issued all the time.
