In the wake of the #MeToo Movement, the state of Vermont has become one of the first states in the country to simplify the process for workers to remain with their employer or return to the company after settling a sexual harassment claim. Independent Governor Philip Scott signed the bill into law at the beginning of this month – on its face, a good development. Upon closer inspection however, one of the law’s provisions empowers the office of the state Attorney General and state civil rights attorneys to visit employer offices, review their records and, if necessary, order employers to change their procedures, conduct worker surveys or even order sexual harassment prevention training programs for their employees. In addition, the law, H.707 (An act relating the prevention of sexual harassment) calls for the creation of an online portal to make worker complaints easier to file. The law becomes effective next month with the portal expected to be up and running by December 15.
