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 the trial court, 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, rule or regulation to the contrary, the department of the trial court shall establish a sick leave bank for Sheila Ferreira, an employee of the department. Any employee of the department of the trial court may voluntarily contribute 1 or more sick, personal or vacation days to the sick leave bank for use by said Sheila Ferreira. Whenever Sheila Ferreira terminates employment with the department or requests to dissolve the sick leave bank, the sick leave bank shall be transferred to the trial court paid 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 of the trial court.
