    VT FaMLI

    Vermont Family & Medical Leave Insurance

    Currently, Vermont is considering implementing a statewide family and medical leave insurance program that would allow Vermonters to have access to paid, job-protected leave for to take time to bond with or care for a new child, recover from a serious long-term illness or injury, or care for a family member with a serious long-term illness or injury.

    Without job-protected, paid time off, parents face an impossible choice between their child’s health and their income. When parents have the opportunity to care for and bond with a newborn, they are giving their children the best start, which will help Vermont’s future generations thrive. Programs like FaMLI help boost our economy by attracting more young talented people to the state and encouraging young families to stay in Vermont, which ultimately helps attract new businesses here and helps our current small business community thrive. Creating a statewide insurance program not only would provide support to families, but to employers as well.
