Note that Vermont employers who already offer paid time off/paid sick time or are a party to a collective bargaining agreement will be in compliance with the new law if employees are permitted to use their paid time benefit for the above reasons set forth in the law, and if their current policy offers accrual and usage rates equal or more generous than the new law.
