Starting January 1, 2021, Maine’s postings for minimum wage and regulation of employment were updated.

The 2021 Maine minimum wage was increased to $12.15/hr. Previously, last year’s wage rate was $12.00 from January 2020 to December 31, 2020. The revision was released in January 2021 and all of our posters printed since the beginning of the year have this update reflected on the notice.

In addition, the notice titled Regulation of Employment was updated with a new law for Earned Paid Leave, effective January 1, 2021, detailed as follows:

An employer that employs more than 10 employees in the usual and regular course of business for more than 120 days in any calendar year shall permit each employee to earn paid leave based on the employee’s base pay. An employee is entitled to earn one hour of paid leave from a single employer for every 40 hours worked, up to 40 hours in one year of employment. Accrual of leave begins at the start of employment, but the employer is not required to permit use of the leave before the employee has been employed by that employer for 120 days during a one-year period.
