Vermont Workers Compensation Laws

Vermont workers compensation laws have been designed in such a way that provides protection to both employees as well as employers in cases of occupational injuries and illnesses. Injured workers have the legal right to claim for compensation benefits. But, at the same time, the laws also limit the extent of the liability of employers on the basis of an array of factors. It is mandatory for all employers to carry adequate amount of insurance coverage in this regard. There are no numerical exceptions to this legal requirement but waivers are permitted in specific cases.
