ACT NO. 105


Discovery of Employee Records

This act requires a party in a civil action seeking the production of employee records to notify the employee first. The employee then has 20 days to object on the grounds that production of the records will cause the employee annoyance, embarrassment, oppression, under burden or expense, or other grounds provided by law. The employee has a right to be heard before the court rules on the request for production of the employee's records. If the court grants the request for production of the employee's records, it may limit discovery as provided in Rule 26(c) of the Vermont Rules of Civil Procedure (protective order).

Effective Date: July 1, 1998
