The Workers' Compensation Division of the New Hampshire Department of Labor was created in 1947 with the passage of RSA 281. This law, originally enacted in 1911, requires employers to provide no fault workers' compensation insurance coverage for employees in case of accidental injury, death of occupational disease, "arising out of and in the course of employment" .

The Workers' Compensation Division administers and enforces the provisions of RSA 281-A including the enforcement of coverage requirements for all employers, the oversight of the level of medical and wage replacement benefits to be paid to injured workers, conduct hearings on contested claims, and monitoring of insurance carriers and claim administrators to ensure the prompt payment of benefits and delivery of services. The Division also certifies private vocational rehabilitation providers and monitors vocational rehabilitation services provided to eligible injured workers. Additionally, the Division approves and monitors the use of managed care programs in Workers' Compensation
