Rhode Island law prohibits employers from requesting tax documents from applicants
Employers operating in Rhode Island should note that the state has a law in place prohibiting employers from requesting tax-related documents from prospective employees as a condition of consideration for employment.
This includes requesting W-2s or other state or federal tax documents in an effort to verify an applicant or employee’s previous employment since these checks are typically conducted as part of a conditional offer of employment.
Specifically, RI Gen L § 28-6.9-1 states:
Employers operating in Rhode Island should review their practices to ensure compliance with the above restriction.
