FAQs / How often may the University ask for medical certification for an on-going serious health condition?

The University may require an employee to provide periodic updates as to the serious health condition for which they are taking leave.  Recertification shall not be requested more often than every 30 calendar days unless:

  • the duration of the medical condition is less than 30 calendar days;
  • the employee requests an extension of FML leave;
  • the circumstances described in the previous medical certification change significantly;
  • the University receives information that casts doubt upon the employee’s stated reason for leave or the continuing validity of the most recent medical certification.

In all cases, the University may request recertification of a serious health condition every 6 months and/or at the end of the 12-month leave period.
