I understand that I am required to complete a FMLA Leave Certification of Health Care Provider form and submit the
form to Human Resources before my leave commences. I understand that if my leave is approved, my time away
from work will be charged against my 12 week leave maximum under FMLA. Upon approval of this requested leave, I
am required to utilize all paid time available to me prior to going into an unpaid leave status. In the event that I go into
an unpaid status while on leave, I understand that I must contact Human Resources to make arrangements to pay my
portion of health insurance premiums.
I request the following forms for my FMLA leave of absence:
1. Certification of Health Care Provider: This form is to be completed by either my health care provider (if this
leave is for my own serious health condition) or by my family member’s health care provider (if this leave is for
the serious health condition of a spouse, parent, or child). My physician must complete this entire form.
Failure to complete this form may delay or prevent my leave approval.
2. Continuation of Benefits While on FMLA Leave: This is an agreement between my employer and myself to
continue my benefits while on FMLA leave and a financial arrangement for my portion of health care premiums.
3. Notification of FMLA Status (Approval/Denial): This is to notify me that my employer is designating the leave as
FMLA leave and to inform me in writing of the specific expectations and obligations required by my employer
4. Request to Return From FMLA Leave: I should fill out the top portion of the form, notifying Human Resources of
the date of my return. For my own serious health condition, the bottom portion of the form (fitness-for-duty
certification) should be filled out by my Health Care Provider and returned to Human Resources on the day I
return to work from FMLA leave.
I understand that the Certification of Health Care Provider form should be returned to Human Resources within 15
days. If I am not able to return the form within the allowed timeframe, I will contact Human Resources for assistance.
If this information is not received in the required timeframe, my leave will be considere d una uthorized.
