Revised RLA Form Now Available Online for Immediate Use - 04/12/12

Due to recent revisions requested by the Provost Office and Risk Management, an updated version of the Request and Leave Action for Sabbatical, Research/Instructional/Engagement Travel, Outside Activity Leave or Change in Duty Station (RLA) form has been posted on the Vice President for Human Resources Forms website for immediate use.

The Revised 2/12 version of the RLA has added a line under “Outside Activity Leave” (Section 1D) on which staff members can inform the Provost Office of the date their Reportable Outside Activity Form was filed.

Also, Risk Management added instructions under “Location While on Leave” (Section 1H). The instructions state: “If you are traveling outside of the 50 United States, please fax a completed and approved copy of this form to the Purdue Risk Management Department at 765-496-1338. This will facilitate your required registration (for qualifying travel) for international travel medical/evacuation insurance coverage. There is no direct cost to faculty or staff.”

Individuals are encouraged to start using the new version of the RLA immediately and to discard any older versions they may be keeping. The older version of the RLA form will no longer be accepted for processing beginning May 14, the first day of summer session.
