An Internet Discussion Group for Human Resources Professionals

Welcome to NHLABORNET, the online discussion group for human resources professionals in New Hampshire and beyond. NHLABORNET is a free service, created and maintained by Sheehan Phinney. This list-serve, email-based discussion group was designed to facilitate discussions between its members (“Netters”). These discussions include a wide variety of topics such as recent developments in employment law, proposed legislation and regulations, interpretations of state and local laws, sharing sample policies, discussing best practices, posting HR position vacancies and other announcements of interest in the field of human resources. There are no advertisements and posts are to and from HR professionals who work in a wide variety of organizations.

Joining NHLABORNET is easy. All you need is an email address and a willingness to abide by the simple rules of the discussion group. Please see “Application and Rules” below. Failure to comply with the rules can result in removal from NHLABORNET.

Once you have registered and become a member, all NHLABORNET postings will automatically be forwarded to your email in-box. If you want to post a comment or question for all members of NHLABORNET, you simply send an email message to the special Internet address we will supply you. Our host computer will then send (via email) your message to everyone on NHLABORNET.

It is very important to remember that postings are not confidential. Even though Sheehan Phinney asks members of NHLABORNET not to share discussions, you should not post any information that you would not want to be made public. It is also important to understand that postings on the bulletin board should not be treated as specific legal or professional advice. Participation in NHLABORNET (e.g., sending, responding to or simply reviewing posted messages) does not create an attorney-client relationship between the participant and Sheehan Phinney.

If you have any questions, please contact our moderator: Jim Reidy. Jim is an employment lawyer and the Co-Chair of Sheehan Phinney’s Labor, Employment, and Employee Benefits Group. He can be reached at
