Repeals certain regulations promulgated on November 17, 2008, and restores those promulgated on January 6, 1996.

Requires the Secretary to permit an employer to require such a recertification no earlier than:
(1) the expiration of the length of time indicated in the original certification; or
(2) one year after obtaining the original certification, if the original certification indicated that the medical condition would last longer than one year. Directs the Secretary to revise the requirements for continuing treatment of a serious health condition to:
