With the federal minimum wage remaining unchanged for more than 10 years now, states and localities are filling in the gap with new minimum wage laws or increases to existing minimum wages.
Many notable employment law developments recently took effect in Maine, including new wage theft and noncompete agreement laws, new pregnancy accommodation requirements and more.
Maine, Maryland, New Hampshire and Rhode Island have enacted new laws regulating the use and enforcement of noncompete agreements.
A new Maine law restricts private employers from asking job applicants about their salary history until after a job offer, including compensation, has been negotiated and made to the applicant.
