Purdue Delays Changes in Policy on Leaves

March 10, 2015

Purdue University sent a letter to employees Monday saying that major changes in its policy on leave days would not be made in the 2015-16 academic year. Purdue had planned to make a number of changes to "simplify" the categories of days off, but when employees added up the various categories, most said that they would lose days, and many objected to the changes. Purdue first announced that it was reviewing the proposal and has now announced that there will be no such changes in the next academic year. Purdue previously announced two changes that have been applauded: extending employee bereavement time and parental leave.
