The Vermont Commission on Women and Governor Peter Shumlin launched the Equal Pay Compact in 2015. The Compact is a voluntary online pledge that enables Vermont employers to learn about and indicate their commitment to closing the wage gap. As of 2020, over 190 businesses and organizations in Vermont have signed on. We invite all employers to sign on and commit to tangible, concrete steps that will help close the wage gap between men and women.
