Virginia General Assembly

House Bill 1798:

Thanks to everyone who worked hard on this bill but ultimately it failed to pass the Senate. We will continue to fight for bills that support working families in Virginia and throughout the Country. Contact your representatives during the year to support this bill for the next session of the General Assembly.

Bill Summary:

              Relocation of call centers to a foreign country; notification requirements. Requires certain call centers that intend to relocate operations from the Commonwealth to a foreign country to give the Commissioner of Labor and Industry at least 120 days' prior notice. The measure requires the Commissioner to compile a semiannual list of all employers that relocate a call center from the Commonwealth to a foreign country and to distribute the list to state agencies. Subject to exceptions, an employer that appears on the list is (i) ineligible for five years for any direct or indirect grants of state funds, any loans from or guaranteed by the state, or any tax credit or reduction in tax liability and (ii) required to repay any financial incentives the employer has previously received. The measure requires new state agency contracts for the performance of state business-related call center and customer service work to provide that such work shall be performed entirely within the Commonwealth.
