An Act establishing a sick leave bank for Amy Burlingame, an employee of the Department of Children and Families.

 

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 this state department, 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 Children and Families shall establish a sick leave bank for Amy Burlingame, an employee of the Department of Children and Families. Any employee of the Department of Children and Families may voluntarily contribute 1 or more sick, personal or vacation days to the sick leave bank for use by Amy Burlingame. Whenever Amy Burlingame terminates employment with the Department of Children and Families or requests to dissolve the sick leave bank, any remaining time in the sick leave bank shall be transferred to Department of Children and Families’ paid 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 of Children and Families Worcester West Area Office.
