The Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA) continues to be one of the largest sources of administrative and legal headaches for HR professionals and employers. And medical certification is a particularly tricky area of FMLA leave management—as evidenced by the large number of questions HR.BLR.com receives from customers on the topic.

Schoenfeld addresses the following FMLA medical certification questions in the video series:
- Is obtaining FMLA medical certification always necessary for leave?
- What can an employer do if an employee fails to return requested medical certification?
- When and how often can an employer request medical recertification?
