Effective January 1, 2020, the required labor law postings for Vermont will be changing. The Vermont Earned Sick Time poster is changing to include a website that workers can access for more information on the law including exemptions for some employment types. The posting is included on Vermont Combination Labor Law Posters and the update is mandatory, so employers should ensure they obtain an updated poster before the effective compliance date.
On the same date, the Vermont minimum wage will also be increasing to $10.96/hr. All Vermont employers should post new Minimum Wage Law posters and should also review their current payroll processing to ensure they will paying employees accordingly starting January 1st, and have budgeted accordingly.
