Organ donor leave in Manitoba

Manitoba has instituted organ donor leave under its Employment Standards Code. This allows an employee to take a 13-week unpaid leave of absence from work to donate an organ or other body tissue. The leave can be extended by an additional 13 weeks in accordance with a doctor’s recommendation. Employees must have worked for the same employer for 30 days to qualify. Ontario is the only other jurisdiction to have similar employment standards provisions.
