The Dignity At Work Act in Rhode Island passes the Rhode Island Senate

Introduced by Senator Frank Ciccone, the Dignity At Work Act in Rhode Island passed the Rhode Island Senate on March 9, 2021.

“I have been introducing similar legislation for many years and in today’s climate of accountability being brought upon harassers, bullies, and abusers, we must continue the social progress we have made and pass this protective legislation for all employees in Rhode Island.  Rhode Island workers deserve to have the Dignity at Work Act become law and I thank my colleagues in the Senate for supporting this important piece of workplace protection legislation,” said Senator Ciccone in a press release.

The bill then headed to the House of Representatives for consideration with a hearing on front of the House Labor Committee on June 9, 2021.
