» Oregon Amends Family Leave Law to Allow Organ and Tissue Donations
July 11, 2019
Amendment Becomes Effective on Jan. 1, 2020.
Oregon recently amended its Family Leave law to include donating a body part, organ, or tissue as a “serious health condition” that is covered by the law. This means eligible employees will be able to take a leave of absence under the law for purposes of donation, including preoperative or diagnostic services, surgery, post-operative treatment, and recovery.
