New Hampshire Sick Leave: What you need to know

There is no New Hampshire law that requires private employers to grant their employees sick leave, although many employers do grant it as a benefit.

If not, they should be changed, and employees notified of the changes.

The Act does not supersede state laws if they provide greater leave rights to employees. ...
