Paying Terminated Employees in Maine
Employers in Maine must comply with these state requirements when making the final wage payment to terminated employees.
In Maine, an employee leaving employment must be paid in full within a reasonable time after demand.
Reasonable time means the earlier of the next day that the employee would regularly be paid or a day not more than two weeks after the day the demand is made.
A loan or advance against future earnings or wages may be deducted if evidenced by a written statement signed by the employee.
Vacation pay is treated as wages.
