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 social services, 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 social services shall establish a sick leave bank for Jamie Richard, an employee of said department. Any employee of said department may voluntarily contribute 1 or more of his sick, personal or vacation days to the paid leave bank for use by said Jamie Richard. Whenever said Jamie Richard terminates employment with said department or requests to dissolve said sick leave bank, the balance of the leave time shall be transferred to the department's sick leave bank.
