Employers Required to Provide Leave for Blood Donators

October 4, 2010

OCTOBER 2007

New York Labor Law (Section 212-j) now requires New York employers to provide three hours leave in any twelve month period to employees who wish to donate blood. The law is applicable only if (1) the employer has more than twenty employees, and (2) the employee seeking such leave works twenty or more hours per week. The law does not require that the three hours of leave be paid.
