Under Rhode Island's legalization law, employers may not discipline an employee solely for private, off-duty marijuana use outside of the workplace subject to limited exceptions.
Rhode Island has enacted a stringent pay equity law that broadens pay discrimination protections, bans salary history inquiries and requires pay range disclosure.
Rhode Island soon will join California, Connecticut, the District of Columbia, Florida, Illinois, Maryland, Massachusetts, New Jersey, New York, Virginia and dozens of localities that either have, or are on a path to have, a $15.00 minimum wage.
