Whereas, The deferred operation of this act would tend to defeat its purpose, which is to establish forthwith a sick leave bank for an employee of the department of public health, 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 public health shall establish a sick leave bank for Judith Sargent, an employee of the department. Any employee of the department may voluntarily contribute 1 or more sick, personal or vacation days to the sick leave bank for use by Judith Sargent. Whenever Judith Sargent terminates employment with the department or requests to dissolve the sick leave bank, any remaining time in the sick leave bank shall be transferred to the extended illness 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.
