In Vermont, two separate state agencies divide regulatory oversight of the Worker's Compensation system. The Department of Financial Regulation - Insurance Division regulates issues relating to insurers and the insurance market and the Department of Labor deals with program administration and issues relating to claims. The resources on this page are primarily for Vermont business owners and insurance industry members.
Check the Department of Labor website for training and other events relating to Workers Compensation issues.
