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 Massachusetts rehabilitation commission, 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 Massachusetts rehabilitation commission shall establish a sick leave bank for Emmy Diaz, an employee of the commission. Any employee of the commission may voluntarily contribute 1 or more sick, personal or vacation days to the sick leave bank for use by Emmy Diaz. Whenever Emmy Diaz terminates employment with the commission 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 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 commission.
