The 191st General Court of the Commonwealth of Massachusetts

AN ACT ESTABLISHING A SICK LEAVE BANK FOR SUSAN METHENY, AN EMPLOYEE OF THE EXECUTIVE OFFICE OF HEALTH AND HUMAN SERVICES

     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 executive office of health and human services, 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 executive office of health and human services shall establish a sick leave bank for Susan Metheny, an employee of the office. Any employee of the office may voluntarily contribute 1 or more sick, personal or vacation days to the sick leave bank for use by Susan Metheny. Upon exhaustion of all other available leave time including personal days, vacation days, sick time and any time available pursuant to the extended leave illness bank established by section 4P of chapter 7 of the General Laws, Susan Metheny may use any time credited to the sick leave bank established by this act. If Susan Metheny terminates employment with the office 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 office.
