Governor Brown recently approved minor revisions to California's organ and bone marrow leave law that clarifies the scope of leave rights for employees who donate organs or bone marrow. Under existing law, employers are required to grant a leave of absence of up to thirty (30) days to an employee who is an organ donor and up to five (5) days for an employee who is a bone marrow donor, in a one-year period. Further, the leave of absence does not constitute a break in service with respect to salary adjustments, sick leave, vacation, annual leave or seniority. The recent amendment clarifies that the leave duration should be calculated based on business, rather than calendar, days, and that the one-year period is measured from the date the employee's leave begins and consists of twelve (12) consecutive months. The amendment also clarifies that such leave does not constitute a break in continuous service for purposes of paid time off policies.
