Francesco (Fran) A. DeLuca, Senior Counsel, presents “Rhode Island Amends Equal Pay, Whistleblower, and Temporary Caregiver Laws,” a live video broadcast co-sponsored by the Federal Bar Association and MyLawCLE.
In July 2021, the Rhode Island General Assembly amended three employment laws—the Whistleblowers’ Protection Act, the Wage Discrimination Based on Sex law, and the temporary caregiver provisions of the Temporary Disability Insurance Act—imposing new obligations on employers and increasing exposure on existing claims. During this webinar, Fran discusses these amendments, what they mean for Rhode Island employers, and practical compliance and risk-avoidance strategies.
Key topics include:
• Expanded protections and heightened damages on whistleblower claims
• Pay transparency and pay history obligations
• Conducting pay audits and establishing a defense to a disparate pay claim
• Increased benefits available for temporary caregiver leave
