STATE OF NEW HAMPSHIRE
In the Year of Our Lord Two Thousand Nineteen
Be it Enacted by the Senate and House of Representatives in General Court convened:
XXXIV. "Part-time" for purposes of employment of a retired member of the New Hampshire retirement system but excepting per diem court security officers and court bailiffs, means employment by one or more participating employers of the retired member which shall not exceed 1,352 hours in a calendar year, except as provided in RSA 100-A:7-b. Notwithstanding the foregoing, unless excepted under RSA 100-A:7-b, no retired member shall be employed on a part-time basis by any participating employer for a period of 28 days from the member's effective date of retirement.
100-A:7-b Certain Part-Time Employment; [Emergency Exception] Exceptions.
I. The annual limitations on part-time employment as defined in RSA 100-A:1, XXXIV shall be modified for retired members to exclude any hours worked during an emergency under this section. For purposes of this section, an emergency includes any event declared by the governor or while working under the direction of the director of the division of forests and lands during woodland fire control. Employers shall include hours worked during an emergency as a separate entry in the report required in RSA 100-A:16, VII(a).
II. A full-time faculty member of the community college system who retires shall not be required to comply with the 28 day requirement in RSA 100-A:1, XXXIV if the retiree will be employed part-time by the community college system for the academic term which begins prior to 28 days from the member's effective date of retirement.
HB 720-FN- FISCAL NOTE
The New Hampshire Retirement System (NHRS) states this bill will have no impact on the retirement system.
The Community College System of New Hampshire (CCSNH) was initially contacted on December 11, 2018 for a fiscal note worksheet, which they have not provided as of January 17, 2019.
This bill exempts a retired full-time faculty member of CCSNH from the requirement that no retired member shall be employed on a part-time basis, with any participating NHRS employer, for a period of 28 days following the effective retirement date. This change will have no impact on the retirement system, however CCSNH has yet to provide information as to whether or not it anticipates a fiscal impact as a result of this bill.
