The Commonwealth of Massachusetts



In the One Hundred and Ninetieth General Court



An Act establishing a sick leave bank for Rachael Purnell, an employee of the Trial Court.


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 Middlesex Probate and Family Court, 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:

by striking out all after the enacting clause and inserting in place thereof the following:-

“Notwithstanding any general or special law to the contrary, the trial court shall establish a sick leave bank for Rachael Purnell, an employee of the Middlesex probate and family court in the department of the trial court. Any employee of the trial court may voluntarily contribute 1 or more sick, personal or vacation days to the sick leave bank for use by Rachael Purnell. If Rachael Purnell terminates employment with the trial court or requests to dissolve the sick leave bank, any remaining time in the sick leave bank shall be transferred to the trial court 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 trial court.”.
