Welcome to the New Hampshire Commission for Human Rights web site.
NH CHR Transition to Online/Phone Services
Due to concern for the health and safety of our customers and staff during the COVID-19 pandemic, the New Hampshire Commission for Human Rights (NH CHR) has transitioned to phone and online services as of Monday, March 23rd.
Walk-in services are currently suspended and the Commission will continue to follow all CDC, NH DHHS, and Office of the Governor's guidelines for state and local businesses relative to in-person meetings. Online, phone, and mail services will not be interrupted.
All parties involved in a case being processed by the NH CHR will continue the process with your assigned Investigator as they are working remotely. Please contact our main office number for assistance if you are not assigned to an Investigator.
If you have questions about your charge status or filing a new charge of discrimination, please search this site for more information about our process and forms, or call (603) 271-2767 if you need assistance.
