Pay Transparency

Effective July 1, 2025, the Vermont pay transparency law requires employers with five or more employees.

  • Employers are required to disclose minimum and maximum salary range or hourly wage on internal and external postings for job openings in Vermont or remote roles where work is conducted for offices physically located within the state (includes positions that a current employee could be promoted or transferred to).
    • Exceptions apply for commission-based jobs. Employers must disclose the position is paid either in whole or in part on a commission basis.
    • Exceptions for positions paid on a tipped basis must disclose that the position is a tipped position and include the hourly base wage or range for the hourly base wage.

Workplace Safety

Vermont has an OSHA-approved state plan that covers most private-sector workers and all state and local government workers within the state. Federal OSHA covers most workers not covered under the state plan.
