Workers' Compensation Insurance Information & Resource Page

Note: In Vermont, two separate state agencies divide regulatory oversight of the Worker's Compensation system. The Insurance Division (Department of Financial Regulation) 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.
