The Office of Human Resource Administration will afford any terminated/transferring employee a personal exit interview with the Director of Personnel Services, upon request.
In accordance with the State of Rhode Island General Law 28-5.1, an Exit Interview Program has been established in order to assure that terminating/transferring employees are not leaving because of discriminatory circumstances.
