How VT's new sexual harassment law will work
All supervisors and managers, including those who oversee or contract with volunteers, interns and independent contractors, have an obligation to ensure the working relationship is "free from sexual harassment."

Vermont is one of the first states in the nation to make it easier for workers to remain with their employer, or return to the company in the future, after settling a sexual harassment claim.

Any part of an agreement that bans future employment — a practice known as a "do not darken my door" clause — will be void and unenforceable.

State civil rights attorneys will be able to review records related to sexual harassment. If necessary, they can order an employer to hold sexual harassment training or send out a working-climate survey.

The Vermont Human Rights Commission will have the same authority to inspect state government offices.
