Overview. Detailed discussion is provided below on selected, broadly applicable state employment poster and notice requirements.
Additional poster and notice requirements and best practices may apply, particularly in industrial workplaces, healthcare and educational facilities, and other workplaces with unique or specific needs.
In addition, many federal statutes also require notices and posters in the workplace. Additional information on federal requirements is available.
Child labor. Employers with minor employees must post a printed notice describing permitted and prohibited operations, occupations, and machines at which a child may be employed; stating the number of hours of work permitted on each day of the week; the hours of commencing and stopping work; and the hours when the time allowed for meals begins and ends (VT Stat. Tit. 21 Sec. 442).
The Child Labor Law poster provided by the Department of Labor meets these requirements.
Crime victims’ rights. Effective July 1, 2018, crime victims are protected from harassment or discrimination based on their status as crime victims. Eligible employees may be entitled to job-protected, unpaid leave to attend proceedings related to the crime (VT Stat. Tit. 21 Sec. 495, 472(c)).
