Earlier this month, Governor Andrew Cuomo signed into law the Living Donor Protection Act. The law protects living organ donors from discrimination based on their status as an organ donor. It also clarifies that New York Paid Family Leave will cover leave for transplant preparation and recovery from surgery for organ and tissue donation.
New York Paid Family Leave appears to be expanding in its scope. As always, reach out to employment counsel with any questions you have on NYPFL.
