Defeated Minimum Wage IncreaseThe New Hampshire Legislature had a proposal to re-establish a state minimum wage and increase it. After passing the House, NFIB was able to defeat this proposal in the Senate. The proposal that would have increased the minimum wage by 24% and enacted an annual escalator in the wage rate based on the rate of inflation.
Workers Comp PaymentsA bill to increase workers compensation payments and therefore increase the cost of workers compensation premiums passed the House but NFIB has worked to defeat this in the Senate.
Apportionment of DamagesNFIB successfully worked with other pro-business groups stalling a bill in the NH Senate that would have disproportionately distributed fault for damages if an immune party (i.e. a municipality) was one of the defendants and found to be at fault.
