The City of Philadelphia has enacted a number of new regulations that may impact employers’ leave and pre-hire policies:
Living Donor Protection Act (LDPA)
Effective June 26, 2021, employees covered by the Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA), who donate all or part of an organ or tissue, must be provided statutory leave. The LDPA indicates that an employee who takes time off to undergo preparation and donation of an organ or tissue, as well as recovery time from the surgery, may be eligible for FMLA leave and associated protections. Under the LDPA, employees may also use FMLA to care for a spouse, child, or parent with a serious medical condition who is or will be an organ or tissue donor.
