Vermont's New Pay Equity Law
Julie Mackaman, Secretary of AAUW of Vermont, recently testified in support of equal pay bills H.294 and S.275. Both bills prohibit an employer from requesting an applicant's salary history prior to a job offer. Julie testified by phone to the House General, Housing, and Military Affairs Committee.
The Middlebury Branch wrote a letter of support to committee chairs and lead sponsors of both bills.
H.294 was passed in both houses of the Vermont Legislature and was signed by Governor Scott on May 11, 2018. It is now titled Act 126 and the final language can be read by clicking the link below.
