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


Whereas , The deferred operation for this act would tend to defeat its purpose, which is forthwith 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 auth ority of the same, as follows:

              SECTION 1. Notwithstanding any general or special law, rule or regulation to the contrary, the Trial Court shall establish a sick leave bank for Sheila Ferreira, an employee of the Trial Court.   Any employee within the Tria l Court may voluntarily contribute 1 or more sick, personal or vacation days to the sick leave bank for use by Sheila Ferreira.   Whenever Sheila Ferreira terminates employment with the Trial Court or requests to dissolve the sick leave bank, the balance of the sick leave shall be transferred to the Trial Court sick leave bank.  Sick leave bank days may 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.
