The DOL's Wage and Hour Division often produces model forms and opinion letters for employers, case managers and even employees on those topics, to help with their compliance and understanding. 

Speaking of opinion letters, the DOL has issued three this year alone with regards to the FMLA. To help you grasp the 2019 DOL opinion letters and remain compliant, we summarized them in a digestible format!
