Workers’ Cooperatives

In 2017, the Rhode Island General Assembly enacted Title 7, Chapter 6.2 Workers’ Cooperatives, which incentivizes the creation of enterprises that are democratically controlled and operated by their own workers.

Effective January 1, 2018, the RI Department of State, Division of Business Services will begin to accept Articles of Incorporation for Workers’ Cooperatives. Any existing business corporation may also file Articles of Amendment to organize as a Workers’ Cooperative.
