Webinar Recording: Medical Certification and Recertification for FMLA & State Leaves

DMECResources, Tools & Tactics Archives

What is an employer’s option when they doubt the validity of a leave request? When is it appropriate to trigger recertification or a 2nd opinion? This session explored answers to those questions, discussed what is allowed upon initial certification and recertification of the leave, and offered ways to identify a deficient or incomplete certification.
