Maine Law (Title 26 
M.R.S.A. § 42-B) requires 
every employer to 
place this poster in 
the workplace where 
workers can easily see it.	Labor Laws of the State of Maine provide protection for 
people who work in Maine. The Maine Department of Labor 
administers the laws, which all employers must follow. 
Department representatives inspect workplaces to ensure 
compliance. Citations and penalties may be issued to 
employers who do not comply.	
Minimum Wage is $14.15 per hour effective January 1, 2024	
Exemptions from Overtime 
Maine statutes incorporate by reference the salary 
requirements under the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA).  
The new minimum salary requirement will be $816.35 
per week as of January 1, 2024.  Salary is only one factor in 
determining whether a worker is exempt from overtime 
under federal or state law.  The duties of each worker must 
be considered as part of this analysis. Failure to adhere to 
both requirements—meeting the duties test and the  
weekly salary threshold— are violations of state law and 
potentially federal law depending on the discrepancies in 
the laws.
Statements to Employees 
Every employer shall give to each employee with the 
payment of wages a statement clearly showing the date  
of the pay period, hours worked, total earnings and  
itemized deductions.
Employers shall keep, for three years, accurate records of 
hours worked and wages paid to all employees.
The Department of Labor enforces state wage and hour 
laws. Employers with questions about the law may call  
207-623-7900 or may visit the department’s webpage.

Minimum Wage
Under Maine labor laws, any business operating in the 
state with one employee is automatically covered by 
state law.  This includes all public and private employers 
regardless of profit or size. Effective January 1, 2024, the 
minimum wage in Maine is $14.15 per hour.
Municipal Minimum Wage Ordinances 
Employers with employees who work in Bangor  
and/or Portland or any other municipality that passes 
a local minimum wage ordinance, may be subject to 
additional regulations and should check with municipal 
Service Employee 
A service employee is someone who regularly receives 
more than $179 a month in tips. As of January 1, 2024, 
employers must pay a direct service wage of at least 
$7.08 per hour. If the employee’s direct wage combined 
with earned tips do not average, on a weekly basis, the 
state required minimum wage, the employer must pay 
the difference. 
Unless specifically exempted, employees must receive 
overtime pay for hours worked in excess of 40 in a 
workweek at a rate not less than time and one-half their 
regular rate of pay.  Employers have the right to allow or 
deny overtime, but if overtime is worked, it must be paid 
in accordance with state requirements. Compensatory or 
“comp” time cannot be used by private-sector employers, 
although private-sector employers can allow employees 
to flex their time within the workweek (but not the pay 
period if the pay period is longer than a seven day cycle 
in the workweek).	
The Maine Department of Labor provides equal opportunity in employment and programs.  
Auxiliary aids and services are available to people with disabilities upon request.
