Top 10 NH Labor Violations
Review now or regret later!

By Edward D. Alkalay

If you own or manage a business that has any employees, complying with all labor laws is critical. If you do not comply with these laws it could result in fines, needless stress, and in extreme situations the closing down of your business. In this article, I will list the ten most common labor law violations reported on New Hampshire Department of Labor Inspector's Reports.

(1)  Failing to provide written notice to employees of their wage rate, pay period, pay day and a description of fringe benefits, including any changes.

(2)  Employing Illegal Aliens (not having proper documentation).

(3)  Misclassifying employees as independent contractors.

(4)  Failing to keep accurate record of all time worked.

(5)  Failing to compensate employees who take work breaks that are shorter than 20 minutes in duration.

(6)  Failing to pay wages by automatically deducting for lunch periods not taken.

(7)  Failing to pay 2 hours minimum pay at their regular rate of pay on a given day that an employee reports to work at the request of the employer.

(8)  Deducting illegal sums from wages.

(9)  Failing to pay employees final wages, in full, when due.

(10) Illegally employing of workers under 18 (not having proper paperwork, hours violations, or working in a hazardous environment).

You can find the cite to the New Hampshire statute which references these issues at nhtravelcouncil.com/newsletter/LaborLawViolations.pdf. If you, as an employer or manager, have any questions or concerns about these issues, you should investigate if your business or organization is in compliance. If it is not, you should immediately rectify the situation and/or talk with an attorney as how to best do so.
