New information for employees who are forced to leave their job as a result of domestic violence, sexual violence, or stalking

Employers in Vermont must post a new version of the state’s Unemployment Insurance notice. 

The notice, which was issued by Vermont’s Department of Labor (DOL), includes new information for employees who are forced to leave their job as a result of domestic violence, sexual violence, or stalking. These employees may now be eligible for unemployment benefits under the Domestic and Sexual Violence Survivor’s Transitional Employment Program.

Employees who wish to apply for these benefits are encouraged to call the program’s toll-free phone number provided on the notice and ask to speak with the Domestic Violence Program Manager.

Additionally, the notice includes a new website for the Vermont Department of Labor as well as a toll-free phone number for the Workforce Development Department. Both points of contact can provide information on local Career Resource Centers (previously called American Job Centers) where individuals who are unemployed can get help finding a job, an internship, or job training opportunities.
