The 191st General Court of the Commonwealth of Massachusetts

AN ACT ESTABLISHING A SICK LEAVE BANK FOR RYANE LINEHAN, AN EMPLOYEE OF THE DEPARTMENT OF REVENUE.

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 revenue, 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 regulation to the contrary, the department of revenue shall establish a sick leave bank for Ryane Linehan, 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 Ryane Linehan. If Ryane Linehan terminates employment with the department 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. Upon exhaustion of all other available leave time, including personal days, vacation days, sick time and any time available pursuant to the extended illness leave bank established by section 4P of chapter 7 of the General Laws, Ryane Linehan shall be permitted to use any time credited to the sick leave bank established by this act. 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.

Approved, September 30, 2019.
