- New Hampshire has its own version of the federal WARN Act which triggers protections for employees at lower thresholds than its federal counterpart, but also provides a more expansive choice of exceptions for employers to avoid strict compliance. See Layoffs, Reductions in Force and Plant Closings.
- The New Hampshire Whistleblower Protection Act shields employees who engage in certain legally protected activities, refuse to commit illegal acts or participate in investigations from termination or other retaliation. See The New Hampshire Whistleblower Protection Act.
