Human Resources Mission, Vision, and Strategic Goals For You

Pay, Time off and Leave

Employees and supervisors are encouraged to work together to accommodate the potential need for flexible work schedules during the pandemic. Employees who need time off can use their available personal leave – either sick or vacation time. The additional leave options provided by the Families First Coronavirus Response Act (FFCRA) ended March 31, 2021.

When FMLA or paid parental leave is needed, please access the Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA) forms via the Human Resources Forms web page (under the Benefits tab). The Request and Notice and Medical Certification forms are required to be completed and returned before FMLA leaves can be approved. 

For those who need to file new requests but do not have access to the Internet, please submit requests through hr@purdue.edu or contact HR customer service (765-494-2222 or toll free at 877-725-0222) for further assistance. Paperwork will be mailed out in the timeliest manner possible.

How can I remain in paid status while receiving the vaccination and/or recovering from side effects?

You can use your available sick time (as you would during a medical appointment or for illness) or you may also use available personal time. For further guidance, contact hr@purdue.edu.

All COVID-19 benefit vendor updates or announcements are available online.
