Employment Law Hotline

McLane Middleton

Employer and employee relations have become exceedingly sensitive and delicate in today’s legal climate.

Actions that once might have been dismissed as poor judgment or bad timing can now result in million-dollar lawsuits against employers. Managers, boards, and supervisors can no longer afford to make employment-related decisions without first considering the legal ramifications.

The NH Center for Nonprofits Employment Law Hotline aids in preventing members from being ill-prepared for legal actions and claims arising from wrongful termination, age discrimination, racial discrimination, sexual discrimination, and sexual harassment

About the Hotline

The Employment Law Hotline is available as a service to members of the NH Center for Nonprofits. Members have direct access during normal business hours to the Hotline’s attorneys at McLane Middleton.

Qualified Hotline attorneys are available to answer your employment-related questions before you act. The Hotline attorneys will let you know if you are facing a potential liability issue and how best to proceed. They are able to provide sound legal advice on federal and state employment matters including those which involve Title VII, FMLA, ADA, Fair Labor Standards Act, wrongful termination, and age, sex, and race-based discrimination. Just call (603) 628-1426 or e-mail

Is There a Fee?

The Hotline is available at no charge to NH Center for Nonprofits members and will provide up to a half hour of general legal advice per employment issue. McLane Middleton will keep confidential any information which it receives relative to the employment matter.

The Wages and Benefits Report

The Report on Nonprofit Wages & Benefits is your go-to source for NH nonprofit compensation data. The intent of the report is to provide nonprofit board and staff leaders with a tool which should serve as a launching point for conversations on human resource management, recruitment, retention and satisfaction:

  • How do I put my organization's compensation level in perspective for the IRS and general public?
  • How should I set pay and benefits for new hires?
  • Where can I find objective salary information for my board?

Every 2 years we ask nonprofits to participate in a survey in the spring. The 2020 report based on that survey is now available.

Download a copy of the Executive Summary.

If your nonprofit organization is a member of the Center AND participated in the survey, the individual who completed the survey should have received an email with details about accessing your free copy of the report. Please contact info@nhnonprofits if you have questions about which email address was used.

If your nonprofit organization is not a member of the Center and/or did not participate in the survey, you can order your copy today.


The price for the report is based on two factors

  1. Did you participate in the survey? Not sure? Contact us at and we’ll let you know.
  2. Are you a member of the Center? Not sure? Look for your organization on our member list.

For the first time, the report is available in both print and digital format. Based on your answers to the two questions above and whether you'd like a print or digital copy, click on one of the links below.

Note: Digital access will be granted immediately after your order is approved (see below). Print copies will take several days to reach you depending on the shipping that you choose. Shipping is an additional cost.

To ensure that everyone gets the discounts they are eligible for, we will be reviewing all orders before they are finalized. When you submit your order, we will be notified and will verify your survey participation status and your membership status within 2 business days. If you’ve chosen the correct pricing, your order will be approved and released. Otherwise, we will email you to let you know why your order was not approved.
