June 2019 | Preventing Sexual Harassment in the Workplace | Vermont Attorney General’s Small Business Initiative and Civil Rights Unit
Vermont Attorney General T.J. Donovan released this video aimed at assisting Vermont employers in understanding workplace sexual harassment laws. The video provides an overview of Vermont’s workplace sexual harassment laws and summarizes employers’ obligations under those laws.
Produced with assistance from WCAX TV, the video includes a roundtable discussion moderated by Tabitha Pohl-Moore, president of the Rutland Area Branch of the NAACP, and features Cary Brown, VCW's executive director, as well as Shirley Jefferson, the associate dean for student affairs and diversity at Vermont Law School. The video defines workplace sexual harassment, explains Vermont employers’ obligations to appropriately respond to claims of sexual harassment, and provides links to resources such as the Vermont Department of Labor’s model sexual harassment policy.
This was a joint project between the Attorney General’s Small Business Initiative and Civil Rights Unit.
