With almost no advance notice, the federal government has revised recently expired FMLA forms to reflect a new effective date: March 31, 2015. The core suite of FMLA forms—doctors’ certifications of serious health conditions, notices of rights and responsibilities and designation notices—was set to expire Feb. 28.

On Feb. 25, notice of a one-month extension appeared in the Federal Register, and on March 1, the Department of Labor’s FMLA Web page added links to updated forms carrying the March 31 expiration date.

Practical impact: Right now, probably none. If past practice holds true, old FMLA forms you may have printed out will still suffice. Or scroll down to the forms section of the DOL's website and print fresh ones.
