FMLA Insights Link to more items from this source
May 20, 2014
"[O]nce an employee provides 'complete and sufficient' certification signed by the health care provider, the court opined, the employer 'may not request additional information from the health care provider.' ... For this court, when the employer required a doctor's note for every FMLA-related absence -- doctor's appointment or not -- it was tantamount to requesting re-certification over and over again." [Oak Harbor Freight Lines, Inc. v. Antti, No. 3:12-CV- 00488-KI (D. Ore. Feb. 19, 2014)]
