Attorney John Vanacore is waiting to be scheduled for oral argument at the New Hampshire Supreme Court. On June 9, 2016, the Supreme Court accepted his appeal regarding a former employee who was terminated for counting time he spend driving from home to a repair shop in his work vehicle as work time, a long-standing custom of the division. However, a new director disagreed, and issued the employee a letter of warning. Since the employee had previously been issued four letters of warning, the employer was required to terminate him for receiving five letters of warning in the last five years. The employee argues that the final letter of warning was unwarranted and hopes the Supreme Court will agree with him.
Oral argument will likely be scheduled for early in 2017.
