- In Vermont, an employment contract must be signed by both parties and will be enforced according to their terms. See Employment Contracts.
- Restrictive covenants in Vermont are enforceable, but must be carefully designed to protect legitimate business interests, and must be reasonable in scope and duration. See Restrictive Covenants.
- Vermont has adopted a version of the Uniform Trade Secrets Act and enforces protection of proprietary information. See Trade Secrets.
