An Act establishing a sick leave bank for Edward Gates, an employee of the Department of Environmental Protection.

 

Whereas, The deferred operation of this act would tend to defeat its purpose, which is to establish forthwith a sick leave bank for a certain employee of the department of environmental protection, 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 or rule or regulation to the contrary, the Department of Environmental Protection shall establish a sick leave bank for Edward Gates, an employee of the department.  Any employee of the department may voluntarily contribute 1 of more sick, personal, or vacation days to the sick leave bank for use by Edward Gates.  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.  Whenever Edward Gates 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.
