SEA News for April 1


Today the Families First Coronavirus Response Act goes into effect. Below is a guide from the U.S Department of Labor on what it all means for you and your family. As always, we encourage you to reach out if you have questions. We have also put together a list of Frequently Asked Questions for you.



  • SEA representatives met with management from NH Employment Security on Monday to review the significant and growing concerns that the agency and its employees are facing. We are expected to meet later this week to follow up and monitor the outcome of these discussions.
  • Through recent discussions and input with the State, the SEA secured a temporary 10% raise for most full-time and part-time liquor store employees until May 4. The SEA is involved in ongoing discussions with the State to secure this for as many agencies as possible. We understand the tremendous hard work that you do and it is only fair that the State treats all workers equally.
  • The Department of Administrative Services has issued Protocols on Returning to work if sick or exposed to COVID-19. You can access it here. As always, please reach out to us with any questions about this protocol that you may have.

We are always here for you. Please respond to this email if you have any questions. For your reference, you can access the latest updates from us here.
