See what’s new for your 2008 labor law posters.
The New Hampshire Department of Labor has new requirements for youth employment and additional criteria that must be met before a person is considered exempt from being an “employee”.
- Minimum wage poster. now states that a written document for parents of a 16 or 17-year-old employee shall be on file at a worksite prior to the first day of employment.
- The previous New Hampshire labor law poster stated only that an employer “maintains” such documentation.
- An added provision that written parental permission for employment is not needed for any 16 or 17-year-old youth who has graduated from high school or obtained a general equivalency diploma.
- Independent Contractor poster. The Criteria to Establish an Employee or Independent Contractor poster has also been revised to include a number of new requirements for anyone to be considered exempt from the definition of “employee” as set by New Hampshire labor statutes.
- Persons who provide services as part of residential placement for anyone with certain disabilities have been added to a list of those considered exempt from the definition of an employee.
- 7 new items have also been added to the list of criteria, all of which must be met for a person to be exempt from the definition of “employee” in New Hampshire.
