Return to Work Safely and Give Your Employees Confidence!
Given the current COVID-19 Pandemic, Employers are more than ever looking towards the regulatory agencies for guidance to be able to have their employees return to the workforce safely. According to The Occupational Safety and Health Act (OSHA) is responsible “To assure safe and healthful working conditions for working men and women;
  • by authorizing enforcement of the standards developed under the Act;
  • by assisting and encouraging the States in their efforts to assure safe and healthful working conditions;
  • by providing for research, information, education, and training in the field of occupational safety and health.”
  • With the mixed messages from the medical, political and regulatory agencies, Employers are now confused and have mixed feelings about transitioning their workforce to the new normal.

DOL and the New FMLA Forms

WASHINGTON, DC – The U.S. Department of Labor’s Wage and Hour Division (WHD) announced significant steps to streamline optional-use forms that workers can use to request and employers can use to coordinate leave under the Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA). WHD also published a Request for Information (RFI) in the Federal Register seeking the public’s feedback on the law’s administration and use.

WHD’s new forms are simpler and easier for employees, employers, leave administrators and healthcare providers to understand and use. Revised with substantial public input, the forms include more questions that users can answer by checking a response box and electronic signature features to reduce contact. WHD believes the changes will reduce the time users spend providing information, improve communications between leave applicants and administrators and reduce the likelihood of violations. New DOL Forms
