FMLA Forms Expire Today – Just Keep Using Them ... For Now

The Department of Labor-provided forms for FMLA use are expiring today. Unfortunately, this doesn’t mean that you no longer need to provide them to employees.

When federal forms expire without approval of the new proposed form by the Office of Management and Budget, they automatically renew on a month-by-month basis. Additionally, in this case, the DOL asked that its current forms be renewed without any changes. Assuming this request is approved, we will end up continuing to use the same forms we’ve been using, just with a new expiration date.

Bottom line – nothing earth-shattering happening here, but in case you were wondering what to do now that the expiration date has passed, the answer is business as usual.

If there end up being any changes to the forms, we’ll keep you in the loop, and we’ll also make updates to Cascade’s combined OFLA/FMLA forms for your convenience. If you have any questions about family leave administration, feel free to give us a call.
