BI’s Article search uses Boolean search capabilities. If you are not familiar with these principles, here are some quick tips.

To search specifically for more than one word, put the search term in quotation marks. For example, “workers compensation”. This will limit your search to that combination of words.

To search for a combination of terms, use quotations and the & symbol. For example, “hurricane” & “loss”.

Vermont lowers employer comp fund contributions

Vermont lowers employer comp fund contributions

Vermont Governor Phil Scott signed an economic development bill Thursday that will reduce employer contributions to the workers compensation fund from 1.75% to 1.4%. 

Reducing employer contributions to the workers comp fund was a move to make Vermont more affordable, according to a Thursday statement from the governor’s office.

The bill, S.135, also increases the penalties for violations of the state’s workers comp and Vermont’s Occupational Safety and Health Administration rules. 

Many of the provisions in S. 135 went into effect upon its signing, and the rest of the provisions are effective July 1, according to a spokeswoman from Gov. Scott’s office.
