By Mr. Hill of Ipswich, a petition (subject to Joint Rule 12) (accompanied by bill, House, No. 3496) of Bradford Hill for legislation to establish a sick leave bank for Nancy Whittier, an employee of the Trial Court.  Senate Ways and Means . 


The Commonwealth of Massachusetts



In the Year Two Thousand Eleven



AN ACT establishing a sick leave bank for Nancy Whittier, an employee of the Trial Court.


              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 trial 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:

              Notwithstanding any general or special law or rule or regulation to the contrary, the trial court of the commonwealth shall establish a sick leave bank for Nancy Whittier, an employee of the Salem district 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 Nancy Whittier. Whenever Nancy Whittier 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.
