HR Service Center now handling all West Lafayette FMLA processing

West Lafayette campus employees, supervisors and business office staff should now contact the Human Resources Service Center (HRSC) for anything related to the Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA). 

"In the past, FMLA processing was handled by various offices around campus," according to Teresa Wesner, customer service manager in HR. "We've pulled all the processing into a central office to increase efficiency."

HRSC staff are available to assist with all FMLA matters, including:

  • Paperwork to request a new FMLA leave
  • Questions pertaining to an existing FMLA leave
  • Status updates relating to a pending FMLA leave
  • Questions about the amount of leaving remaining

Questions about FMLA service through the HRSC may be directed to Tammy Synesael, the FMLA supervisor, at
49-41691 or  tammy@purdue.edu. Otherwise, employees and business offices should contact the person assigned to cover their work area, as outlined in the following table.
