AB 1223: Paid Leave for Living Organ Donors

AB 1223: Existing law, the Michelle Maykin Memorial Donation Protection Act, requires a private employer to permit an employee to take a leave of absence with pay, not exceeding 30 business days in a one-year period, for the purpose of organ donation. Existing law requires a public employer to permit a public employee to take a similar paid leave of absence for organ donation, if the employee has exhausted all available sick leave.

This bill would require a private or public employer to grant an employee an additional unpaid leave of absence, not exceeding 30 business days in a one-year period, for the purpose of organ donation. The bill would require a public employee to first exhaust all available sick leave before taking that unpaid leave.
Existing law provides for the regulation of disability insurance, life insurance, and long-term care insurance by the Department of Insurance and prescribes various requirements and conditions governing the issuance of those insurance policies or certificates in the state.
