Vermont Paid Sick Leave Minimum Increase

If you’re a Vermont employer, you should already be providing paid sick leave to your employees, as the state sick leave law went into effect almost two years ago.  The law initially required all employers to provide at least 24 sick leave hours per year, but that increased to 40 hours on January 1, 2019.

Note that this isn’t a change in the law – the increase has always been scheduled. This is just a reminder for all Vermont employers to ensure that you make any necessary adjustments, such as to your accrual tracking in your payroll system.
