Vermont Employment Protections for Victims of Crime Poster Update
Posted on July 5, 2018 byJacy Garraway
A new Vermont law expands employment protections for victims of crimes, adding them as a protected class. Doing so prohibits both discrimination and retaliation against employees who are victims of crimes. The new law specifically helps victims of domestic violence and sexual abuse.
The law states instances when victims are able to take unpaid leave, like court hearings and depositions. The statute also allows employees to use accrued sick, vacation, or any other accrued paid leave instead of unpaid leave. All business owners are required to post this poster or could be subject to fines.
Notice date: July 2, 2018
Suggested post date: ASAP
