Maine Equal Pay Law	
This poster is provided at no cost by the Maine Department of Labor and may be copied.	
Are you being paid less than an employee of the opposite sex for performing the  
same or similar job?	
  	
If so, please ask yourself the following questions.
  1.  Has the other employee worked for the business or been in that job longer than I have?
  2.  Does the other employee have more training, education or experience related to the job  
    than I do?
  3.  Is there a merit system in place that rewards employees with promotion, pay increases or other  
    advantages on the basis of their abilities or qualifications?
  4.  Does the other employee have more responsibilities in comparison to my own responsibilities?
If you cannot answer at least one of the above questions with a “yes,” you may want to file an Equal Pay  
Complaint. The Maine Department of Labor has a printable complaint form which you may access at
www.maine.gov/labor/labor_laws/wagehour.html or you may call 207-623-7900 and request that an Equal 
Pay Complaint form be mailed to you.

Maine Law requires that employees be paid the
