Alabama adopts a paid leave program for organ donations
By Tyler Patchen

A new organ donation policy is now in effect for the state of Alabama.
Under a new state provision, a permanent employee with at least one year of state service may be granted living donor leave, with pay, for donating an organ or bone marrow. The employee must submit, in writing, a request for donor leave, supported by verification by the physician performing the medical procedure and a recommendation by the appointing authority.
