Organ Donor Leave
The Organ Donor Leave (ODL) Program allows CSU employees, who have exhausted all available sick leave, the following leaves of absence with pay:
- A paid leave of absence of up to 30 continuous calendar days in any one-year period to any employee who is donating his or her organ to another person.
- A paid leave of absence of up to five continuous calendar days in any one-year period to any employee who is donating his or her bone marrow to another person.
The one-year period is a "rolling" year commencing on the first day of the ODL.
If an employee is unable to return to work beyond the time or period that ODL was granted, the employee can apply existing vacation credits and/or compensatory time off to the absence, as deemed appropriate. If the employee has exhausted all available leave credits and is unable to return to work following the ODL, the employee may be eligible for Non-Industrial Disability Insurance.
ODL runs currently with the CSU Family Medical Leave Policy, and employees continue to receive benefits (if enrolled) while participating in ODL. Employees who subsequently exhaust all other available leave credits after ODL, may elect to continue benefits via direct payment.
