New Hampshire Allows Electronic Approval and Retention of Wage and Hour Records

Effective June 22, 2021, New Hampshire’s wage and hour recordkeeping statute is amended to provide that required wage and hour records may be made, signed, acknowledged, approved and retained electronically. 

New Hampshire employers must keep a true and accurate record of the following for each employee:

  • Hours worked;
  • Wages paid; and
  • When necessary, classification of employment.

On demand from the New Hampshire Department of Labor (DOL), employers must furnish a sworn statement of the above.

Records must be kept for three years and be open to inspection by the DOL at any reasonable time.
