Subchapter 001 : Conditions for Employment

(Cite as: 21 V.S.A. § 306)
  • § 306. Public policy of the State of Vermont; employment separation agreements

    In support of the State’s fundamental interest in protecting the safety of minors and vulnerable adults, as defined in 33 V.S.A. § 6902, it is the policy of the State of Vermont that no confidential employment separation agreement shall inhibit the disclosure to prospective employers and responsible licensing entities of factual information about a prospective employee’s background that would lead a reasonable person to conclude that the prospective employee has engaged in conduct jeopardizing the safety of a minor or vulnerable adult. Any provision in an agreement entered into on or after the effective date of this section that attempts to do so is void and unenforceable. (Added 2009, No. 157 (Adj. Sess.), § 17, eff. June 3, 2010; amended 2018, No. 5 (Sp. Sess.), § 4, eff. June 19, 2018.)
