Letter to Employee Designating Leave Request as FMLA Leave
Author: Steven J. Luckner, Ogletree Deakins
When to Use
Employers are responsible for either designating an employee's leave as FMLA-qualifying or refusing to designate it as such. Such designation must be in writing. Employers should use this letter when they have received a fully completed certification from an employee's health care provider and determined that the employee's request for leave qualifies as Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA) leave.
