Military Caregiver Leave Certification -
Invitational Travel Orders or Authorizations
An employer requiring an employee to submit a certification for leave to care for a current servicemember must accept as sufficient certification, in lieu of the WH-385 or other form, a copy of an “invitational travel order” (ITO) or “invitational travel authorization” (ITA) issued to any family member to join an injured or ill servicemember at his or her bedside. In such situations, an employer may require an employee to provide confirmation of a covered family relationship to the seriously injured or ill servicemember.
If an employee needs leave beyond the expiration date on the ITO/ITA, the employer may require the employee to provide a complete and sufficient certification by an authorized health care provider (See Military Caregiver Leave Certification – Authorized Health Care Provider) for the remainder of the needed leave period.
