Colorado Increases Protections for Living Organ Donors

Colorado has increased protections for living organ donors. Effective immediately, employers are prohibited from discriminating or retaliating against or taking any adverse action against an employee who is or becomes a living donor owner.

Notably, the law does not require an employer to allow a living organ donor to take any unpaid leave that the employee has not already accrued under the employer’s existing policies applicable to similarly situated employees or that is not required any other applicable law.
