Paid Parental Leave

Please review the Paid Parental Leave policy.

It is the policy of Purdue University to provide Paid Parental Leave to benefits-eligible employees, including graduate student employees, due to the birth of an employee’s child or the placement within an employee’s home of an adopted child. This policy will run concurrently with Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA) leave, in cases where an employee is eligible for FMLA leave. 

  • Paid parental leave (PPL) provides parents additional flexibility and time to bond with their new child, adjust to new family situations and balance professional obligations.
  • Eligible employees receive up to 240 hours (6 weeks) if employed by the University for at least one continuous year, half-time or more, in a benefits-eligible position. If both parents are employed by the University, each parent may receive up to 240 hours of paid parental leave.
Time off requests including requesting paid parental leave are outlined on the Pay@Purdue website. Please contact for further information.
