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 correction, 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 correction shall establish a sick leave bank for Thomas F. Sweeney, Jr., an employee of said department. Any employee of said department may voluntarily contribute 1 or more of his sick, personal or vacation days to said sick leave bank for use by said Thomas F. Sweeney, Jr.
When Thomas F. Sweeney, Jr. terminates employment with said department or requests to dissolve said sick leave bank, the balance of the sick leave time remaining in the sick leave bank shall be transferred to the extended illness leave bank.
