SECTION 1. Section 3 of chapter 175M of the General Laws, as appearing in the 2022 Official Edition, is hereby amended by striking out, in lines 43 and 44, the words “or (ii) a paid family, or medical leave policy of an employer” and inserting in place thereof the following words:- (ii) a paid family or medical leave policy of an employer; or (iii) any accrued sick or vacation pay or other paid leave provided under an employer policy, including, but not limited to, any leave provided under a collective bargaining agreement.
