Outside Section 22
Section 31A of said chapter 29, as so appearing, is hereby amended by adding the following 2 subsections:-
(e) No employee of the commonwealth shall accrue more than 1,000 hours of unused sick leave credits.
(f) No employee of a public institution of higher education listed in section 5 of chapter 15A shall accrue more than 1,000 hours of unused sick leave credits.
This section along with three others limits the accrual of unused sick time to 1,000 hours for executive branch and public higher education employees. It also freezes the accrual of sick time for any employee who has already accrued more than 1,000 hours.
