This bill provides job security for an individual during a period of disability under the "Temporary Disability Benefits Law," P.L.1948, c.110 (C.43:21-25 et al.), which is the result of an organ or bone marrow donation by the individual. Currently, an individual who donates an organ or bone marrow is eligible for temporary disability benefits under the "Temporary Disability Benefits Law" during the period that the individual is unable to work due to the organ or bone marrow donation. However, the "Temporary Disability Benefits Law" does not provide an express guarantee of job security for an individual who is unable to work during a period of disability under the law. This bill provides, for the purposes of donating an organ or bone marrow, that an individual who experiences a period of disability pursuant to the "Temporary Disability Benefits Law" will be entitled to be restored to the individual's position of employment upon the end of the period of disability, or to an equivalent position of like seniority, status, employment benefits, pay, and other terms and conditions of employment. Also, for the purposes of donating an organ or bone marrow, the bill eliminates the one week waiting period for the payment of temporary disability benefits.
