Organ Donation leave is unpaid, job-protected leave of up to 26 weeks, for the purpose of undergoing surgery to donate all or part of a certain organ to a person.
An employee must have worked with the employer for at least 13 weeks to be eligible for this leave. Written notice must be provided to the employer as soon as possible before the leave begins. The employee must also notify the employer as soon as possible with their return date. An employer may also ask for a medical certificate along with the notice.
Upon return, an employee is entitled to return to the same job if the employment leave is for 60 days or less. If the leave is longer than 60 days, the employee can be reinstated to a comparable job. The employee must receive at least the same wage and benefits as before the leave.
