Update to Mandatory New Hampshire Labor Law Posters
To inform employees of their rights and remedies available pursuant to New Hampshire law, the state requires employers to post in conspicuous areas within their place of employment the following mandatory labor law posters:
- Workers’ Compensation Law (obtain from insurance carrier)
- Protective Legislation Law
- Criteria to Establish an Employee or Independent Contractor
- New Hampshire Minimum Wage Law
- Whistleblowers’ Protection Act
- Workers Right to Know
- Equal Pay Law
As noted in our recent blog, NH Wage Law Update: Bi-Weekly Pay Permitted After July 11, 2017, Without NHDOL Approval, a change was made effective July 11th, permitting employers to pay employees either weekly or bi-weekly without first having to seek approval from the NH Department of Labor. This change has also prompted an update to the Protective Legislation Law poster to include language pertaining to bi-weekly pay. In order to maintain compliance, NH employers must print the updated version of the poster and display it wherever their labor laws are posted within their premises.
