New Hampshire Amends Its Protective Legislation Law

Based on a change to the “Granite State’s” Protective Legislation Law, we’ll soon be “rocking” an updated poster for employers in New Hampshire. The Protective Legislation notice has a new revision date of 7/13/17.

What’s New and What’s Not?

Under the Payment of Wages heading, the notice now states that employees must be paid on a weekly or biweekly basis. Previously, the law required that all wages due to an employee be paid within eight days after the expiration of the week in which work was performed.

However, the notice still includes the following exception if a petition is provided by an employer in writing and “shows good and sufficient reason”: The Labor Commissioner may allow wages to be paid less frequently, providing the wages are paid at least once each month.
