Whereas, The deferred operation of this act would tend to defeat its purpose, which is to establish immediately a sick leave bank for a certain employee of the department of conservation and recreation, 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 conservation and recreation shall establish a sick leave bank for Michael P. Harrington, 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 Michael P. Harrington. Whenever Michael P. Harrington terminates employment with the department or requests to dissolve the sick leave bank, the balance of the sick leave bank shall be transferred to the extended illness leave bank. Sick leave bank days shall 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.
