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 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 to the contrary, the trial court shall establish a sick leave bank for Cynthia Bouchard White, an employee of the Essex county juvenile court in the department of the trial court. Any employee of the trial court may voluntarily contribute 1 or more sick, personal or vacation days to the sick leave bank for use by Cynthia Bouchard White. Whenever Cynthia Bouchard White terminates employment with the trial court or requests to dissolve the sick leave bank, any remaining time in the sick leave bank shall be transferred to 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 trial court.
