Substituted by the House, on motion of Mr. Durant of Spencer, for a Bill establishing a sick leave bank for Lisa Renaud, an employee of the Massachusetts Department of Correction (House, No. 4566).  December 31, 2014.


The Commonwealth of Massachusetts



In the Year Two Thousand Fourteen



An Act establishing a sick leave bank for Lisa Renaud an employee of the Department of Correction.


Whereas, The deferred operation of this act would tend to defeat its purpose, which is to establish a sick leave bank for a certain employee of the department of correction, therefore it is hereby declared to be an emergency law, necessary for the immediate preservation of the public convenience.

Be it enacted by the Senate and House of Representatives in General Court assembled, and by the authority of the same, as follows:

Notwithstanding any general or special law to the contrary, the department of correction shall establish a sick leave bank for Lisa Renaud, an employee of the department. Any employee of the department may voluntarily contribute 1 or more sick, personal or vacation days to the sick leave bank for use by Lisa Renaud. Whenever Lisa Renaud terminates employment with the department or requests to dissolve the sick leave bank, any remaining time in the sick leave bank shall be transferred to the extended illness leave bank. Sick leave bank days shall not be used for absences unrelated to the illness or disability that necessitated the establishment of the sick leave bank as determined by the department.
