Whereas, The deferred operation of this act would tend to defeat its purpose, which is to establish forthwith a sick leave bank for certain employee of the department of industrial accidents, 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 industrial accidents shall establish a sick leave bank for Paula Phelan, an employee of the stenographer unit of the department of industrial accidents.
Any employee of the department may voluntarily contribute 1 or more sick, personal or vacation days to the sick leave bank for use by Paula Phelan. Whenever Paula Phelan terminates employment with the department or requests to dissolve the sick leave bank, the balance of the sick leave time shall be transferred to the extended illness leave bank.
