For the fourth consecutive year, Rhode Island legislators have introduced before the General Assembly bills to adopt a state WARN Act. House bill 5508 and Senate bills 0230 and 0367 would establish the Rhode Island Worker Protection and Job Loss Notification Act. The bills were introduced in February and are pending before the House Labor Committee and Senate Labor Committee respectively.
Representatives Slater, Silva, Williams, and Diaz introduced the House bill and Senators Crowley, Pichardo, Goldin, Sosnowski, and Conley introduced the Senate versions. Kudos to each.
