The Department of Labor has issued new forms for employers to use dealing with the Family and Medical Leave Act and the Genetic Non-Discrimination Act. You can find the new FMLA forms here. You’ll see they contain GINA information as well.

Here’s an article from a management-side law firm explaining the new forms. While I don’t disagree with anything in the article, I’d add another point of emphasis. The DOL’s new FMLA Certification forms make it clear that employees are not required to provide a diagnosis when seeking to use FMLA leave. Instead, the diagnostic section of the certification forms is optional; the employee’s doctor can either fill it out or leave it blank without impacting the employee’s FMLA eligibility.
