Equal Pay and other Workplace Laws
These flyers are part of a public information campaign to educate both employers and workers in Vermont about their rights and responsibilities under the new equal pay law, which came into effect January 2014. Vermont workers now have the right to request flexible working arrangements without fear of retaliation. Those intermediate or long-term changes might include working from home, changes in the number of days or hours worked, changes in work arrival or departure times or job-sharing. Employers must discuss and consider such requests at least twice per calendar year. Other information incorporated includes current equal pay laws, how to handle suspected pay discrimination, wage disclosure laws, pregnant worker’s rights, lactation accommodations, anti-retaliation protection, and information concerning family and medical leave.
