Upton & Hatfield values the health and well-being of our employees, clients, families, and communities. To uphold these values, we have implemented recommendations from the Center for Disease Control by encouraging our employees to work remotely whenever possible. This does not change our commitment to you, and we are still available to handle your legal needs and provide you with the highest quality legal services during these unsettled times. Our offices are open, but for urgent matters only in conformity with state and federal authority recommendations. If you have any questions or concerns, we are ready and available to discuss them with you. We want all of us to stay safe while we work during this temporary situation.

NH Employment Discrimination

We know that losing your job for an unlawful reason can be devastating, and that harassment and/or discrimination on the job often leads to serious emotional distress as well as substantial economic losses that may continue for years.

Our employment lawyers have extensive experience helping people who have been wrongfully terminated, people who are whistleblowers, and people who have been subjected to harassment and discrimination based upon their sex (including pregnancy), race, color, marital status, age, religion, national origin, genetic information, sexual orientation, or physical or mental disability.

We have also represented employees in cases involving the Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA) and cases involving an employer’s failure to pay all wages that are due under state and federal law, as well as cases involving an employer’s failure to provide a reasonable accommodation to a disabled employee as required by the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) and state law.

Our employment lawyers are among the most respected and successful advocates in employment law in New Hampshire. We have successfully litigated employment matters before the federal U.S. District Court for the District of New Hampshire, all of the New Hampshire state superior courts, the First Circuit Court of Appeals and the New Hampshire Supreme Court.
