Bone Marrow, Blood or Organ Donor Leave Policy
Author: Meryl Gutterman, formerly of Nukk-Freeman & Cerra, P.C.
When to Use
Several states offer leave for employees of private employers to donate bone marrow or blood, or to serve as an organ donor, in addition to any other medical or personal leave provided. Generally, the nature and length of the leave depends on the underlying cause of the leave. Employers should publish a written policy if the employer is located in a state that requires such leave or if this is an important value to the employer.
