Information May Be Needed From You
Earlier this year, we told you about changes that the State of NH made to the NH First payroll system in order to come into compliance with the federal Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA). As a result of those changes, the state became aware that employees in several agencies were working uneven hours in each week of the pay period — something that violates the federal FLSA.
If this is news to you, you should start by reading our full post on this issue from earlier this year.
Where we are today — what we need from you
Since we last wrote about this issue, the SEA/SEIU Local 1984 and the state have been working on finding resolutions for all affected workers. As we move forward, we need to know if any of the following apply to you or your colleagues:
- You are not being scheduled for either 37.5 or 40 hours per week
- Since Jan. 9, 2015, you have not received at least 75 or 80 hours of pay in each pay period
- Since Jan. 9, 2015, you were told to use leave to get to 75 or 80 hours in a pay period due to the employer not properly scheduling you for a full 37.5 or 40 hours in a week
If any of those apply, please contact Grievance Representative Sean Bolton at firstname.lastname@example.org or 271-3411, ext. 137, no later than Friday, April 24.
We’ll bring you an update as soon as we have more information.
