  • New Hampshire has its own version of the federal WARN Act that triggers protections for employees at lower thresholds for employer coverage and triggering events. See New Hampshire WARN Act.
  • While the New Hampshire WARN Act provides some exceptions allowing for a reduced notice period, covered employers still must provide it as soon as is practicable. See Exceptions to Advance Notice Requirements.
  • Employers may face penalties per employee for each day of noncompliance with the state's mass layoff law. See Penalties and Enforcement.
