Law Effective September 1, 2016
Under a new law in New Hampshire, an employer may not retaliate against an employee solely because he or she requests a flexible work schedule.
The law does not require an employer to accommodate a flexible work schedule, nor does it create a cause of action for failure to provide a flexible work schedule at an employee’s request.
Note: Employers may have related obligations under other federal, state, and/or local laws, such as the reasonable accommodation requirements of the federal Americans with Disabilities Act or the leave requirements of the federal Family and Medical Leave Act.
The new law is effective September 1, 2016. Click here to read the text of the law.
