A bill that will add extra steps and costs for companies that want to move their call centers overseas was introduced in congress last year. While the bill has a long way to go before it becomes law, it has slowly been gaining momentum. It now has 32 co-sponsors. The bill requires businesses with at least 50 call center employees to notify the Department of Labor at least 120 days before moving their call center out of the country. Failure to do so could result in fines up to $10,000 per day. Also included in this bill, businesses with call centers outside of the US must require their agents to disclose their physical location at the beginning of each call.
