Must Purdue allow employees who are parents or caregivers time off from work to care for sick family members with COVID-19?

If certain members of an employee’s family are sick, the employee may be entitled to leave under the Family and Medical Leave Act. COVID-19 may qualify as a “serious health condition.”

FMLA definition, information and resources are available at the Purdue FMLA page.

You may also qualify for paid leave under the Families First Coronavirus Response Act (see above question for details)
