This certificate provides evidence of your prior health coverage. You may need to furnish this certificate if you become eligible under a group health plan that excludes coverage for certain medical conditions that you have before you enroll. This certificate may need to be provided if medical advice, diagnosis, care, or treatment was recommended or received for the condition within the 6-month period prior to your enrollment in the new plan. If you become covered under another group health plan, check with the plan administrator to see if you need to provide this certificate. You may also need this certificate to buy, for yourself or your family, an insurance policy that does not exclude coverage for medical conditions that are present before you enroll.
This form is to be completed by employees seeking to participate in the COBRA program, which allows employees to remain enrolled in their employer's group health plan for a limited time when the employee has left the company. The employee is responsible for the insurance premiums if enrolled in COBRA, but receives the benefit of group coverage, which often means lower premiums.

As an employer, you may use consumer reports when you hire new employees and when you evaluate employees for promotion, reassignment, and retention -- as long as you comply with the Fair Credit Reporting Act (FCRA). There are legal consequences for employers who fail to get an applicant's permission before requesting a consumer credit report or who fail to provide pre-adverse action disclosures and adverse action notices to unsuccessful job applicants. This form may be used to obtain an employee's consent to a request for a consumer report in compliance with the FCRA.
This form should be used when an employee wishes to cancel the coverage of a dependent that they have previously included in his or her health care coverage. The employee should provide the employer with the reason for canceling the coverage and return the form to the employer.
An Employee Handbook (or manual) is necessary to minimize potential employee law suits and to communicate human resource policies without ambiguity. This interactive, attorney-authored Employee Handbook enables you to create this critical document without delay.
Although an employee handbook can be a valuable part of your workplace, it can also make you vulnerable to claims from your employees that the handbook creates an employment contract. Such a contract could limit your right to discipline and terminate your employees. This Employee Handbook Acknowledgment form can help you guard against such claims because it informs employees clearly and unambiguously that the handbook does not create a contract. You should be aware, however, that if your actions or if documents otherwise create a contract with your employees, this form on its own will not be enough to protect you.
