FLMA for pregnacy

What forms need to be filled out for maternity leave for the mother?

For an FMLA leave, the employee must provide adequate notice to the employer of the need for FMLA leave. The employer is then required to notify the employee of their eligibility and rights and responsibilities under the FMLA. Employers may, but are not required to, require medical certification from the employee’s healthcare provider, to support the need for FMLA leave. And finally, the employer must notify the employee of whether or not the absence will be designated as FMLA leave.

There are no requirements for specific forms to be used, but because employers are required to maintain records pertaining to their obligations under the FMLA, most do utilize standard forms for the request for FMLA leave; notification of employee’s eligibility, rights and responsibilities; medical certification; and FMLA leave designation.  Employers may develop their own forms or there are optional forms available on the Department of Labor website.
