FMLA Forms Now Good Through 2021

The Office of Management and Budget (OMB) has approved the reissuing of all Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA) forms with a new expiration date of Aug. 31, 2021. The previous forms had expired on May 31 due to the Paperwork Reduction Act, which requires all government forms to be reviewed, re-approved and reissued (or not) after three years.

The new forms are basically the same as the expiring forms but should be used henceforth. Use of the forms is not mandatory, but the information required on the forms should be completed and retained in some format to show good faith compliance with the FMLA.
