« Legislation Introduced to Provide Paid Family Leave for Federal Workers | Main | Treatment During House Calls by a Health Care Provider Are Not Covered by the FMLA, Sixth Circuit Finds »


Camille Berrios

I've been trying to find if it's ok as an employer to receive from an employee a return to work certification from a Doctor who's not the Doctor who certify initially the health condition that put the employee on FMLA.

Dear Ms. Berrios,

The short answer is yes. An employer is actually not entitled to require the employee to submit a return-to-work certification from the same health care provider who supported the employee's request for leave. An employer is entitled to a return to work certification from a health care provider. The law says nothing about it having to be the same health care provider.

Thanks for reading the Blog.
