Vermont Telecommuting: What you need to know

Vermont law requires employers to consider employee requests for flexible work arrangements at least twice each calendar year. A "flexible work arrangement" is intermediate or long-term changes in the employee's regular working arrangements, including working from home via telecommuting. Employers must engage in good-faith discussions with the employee that can include alternative proposals by both the employer and employee and analysis of whether the request can be granted in a manner “not inconsistent with business operations” or its legal or contractual obligations (Vt. Stat. tit. 21 § 309).
