Vermont Advertising laws & HR compliance analysis

Vermont Advertising: What you need to know

The Vermont Fair Employment Practices Act prohibits employers from printing, publishing, or circulating (or causing to be printed, published, or circulated) a notice or advertisement relating to employment indicating any preference, limitation, specification, or discrimination based on race, color, religion, ancestry, national origin, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity, place of birth, age (for persons 18 years or older), or disability. However, a preference may be indicated where a bona fide occupational qualification requires persons of a particular race, color, religion, national origin, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity, ancestry, place of birth, age, or physical or mental condition. It is also prohibited for any employer, employment agency, or person seeking employees to discriminate on the basis of a person's having a positive test result from an HIV-related blood test or to request or require an applicant to have an HIV-related blood test as a condition of employment (VT Stat. Tit. 21 Sec. 495).
