However, such a specification, limitation, or discrimination may be expressed if the criteria are bona fide occupational qualifications (BFOQs) (NH Rev. Stat. Sec. 354-A:1, Sec. 354-A:7). BFOQ exceptions are rare, and employers should be cautious about making employment decisions that discriminate against a protected group.
This law does not cover religious organizations or institutions.
