  • Employee Health Certification Form. This form is used (1) to determine whether an employee’s condition qualifies as a “serious health condition” under the Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA) and for administration of Dow’s FMLA policy, and (2) to obtain information regarding an employee’s eligibility and administration of the requirements of Dow’s Paid Medical Leave Policy.
