Military Caregiver Leave Certification -
Required Information from the Health Care Provider
An employer may require an employee requesting FMLA leave to care for a covered veteran to obtain certification from an authorized health care provider of that veteran that provides:
The authorized health care provider may, as needed, rely on certain military-related determinations made by an authorized DOD representative (such as a DOD Recovery Care Coordinator) or an authorized VA representative.
The employer must accept as sufficient certification of the servicemember’s serious injury or illness documentation indicating the servicemember’s enrollment in the Department of Veterans Affairs Program of Comprehensive Assistance for Family Caregivers. Such documentation is sufficient certification regardless of whether the employee is the named caregiver in the enrollment documentation.
In all instances when a certification is requested, it is the employee’s responsibility to provide the employer with a complete and sufficient certification. Failure to do so may result in the denial of FMLA leave.
