Fitness for duty certification

Yes. As a condition to restore employee who was absent on Family and Medical Leave Act leave 
employer as per the policies may ask employee to submit a certification from the employee’s own 
health care provider that the employee is able to resume work. Employer may require that the 
fitness-for-duty certification address the employee's ability to perform the essential functions of the 
position if the employer has appropriately notified the employee that this information will be required 
and has provided a list of essential functions.
