The New Hampshire Municipal Association is pleased to partner with others who offer benefits and discounts on program and services to our members. Endorsements are approved by the NHMA board of directors based upon a comprehensive review of the program and/or service. Outside organizations interested in requesting endorsement on a product or service are asked to put their requests in writing and submit to: Timothy Fortier, Communications and Member Services Coordinator, 25 Triangle Park Drive, Concord, NH 03302, or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Current programs and services endorsed by the New Hampshire Municipal Association are:
HealthTrust is an employee benefits pool devoted exclusively to serving towns, cities, counties, schools and quasi-municipal organizations in New Hampshire. Originally established in 1984, HealthTrust's goal is to provide groups with the programs and services needed to effectively manage long-term costs, while helping to keep employees, dependents and retirees healthy and productive. HealthTrust's coverages include medical, prescription, dental, long- and short-term disability, and life. Other HealthTrust value-added programs include Flexible Spending Accounts, Survivor and Transition Care plans, and health management programs.
Drummond Woodsum law firm has partnered with the Association to offer our members a free Employment Hotline to help on a wide range of employment-related matters.
Drummond Woodsum labor law attorneys are available to provide legal advice on matters including Title VII, Family Medical Leave Act, Americans with Disabilities Act, Fair Labor Standards Act, employee discipline, sexual harassment, wrongful termination and age, sex and race-based discrimination.
What Can You Expect?
Drummond Woodsum attorneys will be available to answer employment-related questions --before you act -- and will make every effort to have every call responded to within 24 hours by an employment lawyer. The Hotline attorneys will let you know if you are facing a potential liability and how to best proceed. Drummond Woodsum will keep confidential any information which it receives relative to the employment matter.
Who Can Call the Hotline?
The Hotline is a service available to only administrators, managers, department heads and elected officials from NHMA city and town members, and only concerning questions regarding employees subordinate to the caller. For example, the Hotline will not respond to inquiries from a department head regarding the authority of a town man-ager, or from a town manager regarding the authority of elected officials.
Is There a Fee?
The Hotline is FREE, available at no charge, to NHMA city and town members, and will provide up to ½ hour of legal advice per employment issue. It is anticipated that most general employment law questions can be answered in less time.
Before you act, call 603.623.2500 or email at email@example.com.
