Purdue University implemented a new parental leave policy in October that grants paid time off to either parent for a birth or adoption.
The policy provides up to six weeks of paid leave for the birth mother and up to three weeks for the father of the child or same-sex domestic partner of the birth mother. It provides up to three weeks of paid leave for adoptive parents, including domestic partners, regardless of sex.
Employees earn the leave after working at least half time for one year. If both parents work for the university, they may combine their leaves and allocate the total between them.
It will not apply to elder care, sick child care or other parental leave.
“Flexibility and family-friendly policies are becoming more essential as the workforce continues to change,” Purdue President France Cordova said.
