Please join us on June 8 for an HR Roundtable to discuss the upcoming Rhode Island Healthy and Safe Families and Workplaces Act which goes into effect July 1.

The session will be free-flowing, but topics to be discussed include:

  • What should employers be doing to prepare for the July 1 effective date of the new act?
  • What are best practices for compliance with the new law?
  • How does the new Rhode Island law impact out-of-state employees working in Rhode Island?
  • What is the interplay between the Massachusetts and the Rhode Island sick pay statutes and other laws?
  • What unforeseen issues are on the horizon?
  • FAQs

Who should attend?
Senior HR professionals and executives and in-house counsel with human resources and/or employment law responsibilities.

What’s the format?
Our HR Roundtable events provide a select group of invitees with a casual, open forum where they can share best workplace practices and learn from one another and a few Nixon Peabody attorneys.
