Employers have come up with dozens of methods for ensuring the proper administration of Family Medical Leave Act (FMLA) leave and minimizing its abuse. It’s important to ensure that employees who return to work are truly ready—and that the leave is administered in a way that is fair and legal for all employees. One such method to ensure proper administration is to require fitness-for-duty certifications for employees returning from FMLA leave. This assists in the fair implementation of FMLA leave and also acts as a means to ensure employees can return to work and complete their duties without compromising quality or safety.
