WH-382 Designation Notice is the leave contract between the employer and the employee. It should be completed by an HR professional and submitted to the employee. It specifies the number of days that the leave will take place in regard to the employee’s leave.
The WH-382 is submitted after the employee delivers the necessary files for the leave. The WH-382 basically tells if the FMLA has been approved or not. Also, it can tell a few other things about the employee’s FMLA. These include
- Additional or more information is needed in order to determine if the leave can be approved.
- FMLA doesn’t cover the leave request because of ineligibility
- The employee has used FMLA leave entitlement for that 12 month period
Since this is a form that needs to be completed by the Human Resources of the company, employees or employers do not need to sign or complete any part of the form itself.
