Crime victims added to list of protected classes within law

On May 28, 2018, Governor Phil Scott added crime victims to the list of protected classes under the state's Fair Employment Practices Act.

He clarified circumstances when "crime victims" are allowed to take unpaid leave, for example to attend court hearings and how they should be treated fairly in all other ways on their return to work.
