Report a Mass Layoff/Seasonal Layoff
Per RSA 282-A:45-a and Administrative Rule EMP 303.13, employers are required to report any temporary or permanent layoff of 25 or more individuals to New Hampshire Employment Security.

Worker Adjustment and Retraining Notification (WARN) Act
In addition to the NHES requirement to report mass layoffs in connection with vacation or holiday shutdowns or company closures, New Hampshire’s WARN Act requires employers with 100 or more employees to issue a warning to affected employees, their representatives, and certain government officials 60 days before implementing a mass layoff. Damages and civil penalties may be assessed against employers who fail to comply. The full law may be found at RSA 275-F.
