We Need Your Feedback:  Paid Sick Leave Legislation in RI


Healthy and Safe Families and Workplaces Act

Legislation has been introduced in RI's General Assembly that would require all employers (except the United States Government) to pay full-time employees up to 56 hours of annual sick and safe leave. Part-time, seasonal and temporary employees would also be eligible to earn paid sick and safe leave. Employers who fail to comply would be subject to fines and penalties. The Governor has also declared support for paid sick leave for RI workers in her State of the State address.

We would like feedback on the sick leave/PTO practices at your organization as well as your opinion on this legislation. We plan to share the results of this survey with the Governor and the General Assembly.

You may answer this survey anonymously. Link to the survey:

If you have any questions or would like further information please contact RI SHRM Director of Legislative Affairs, Cindy Butler at

Thank you in advance for your attention to this request.
