does not show that the above law exists to help the employee and in fact shows the commissioner is not filling this position because the NH RSA shown here  http://www.labor.state.nh.us/I-Workers%20Comp%20Laws.htm shows the law is still in existance and reports from inidviduals show that they are not filling the position; in fact denying NH residents of their rights.
