Maine adds Paid-Leave for Any Purpose

Maine adds Paid-Leave for Any Purpose

On Tuesday May 28th, Maine Governor Janet Mills signed into law “An Act Authorizing Employee Leave,” (“the Act”).  This new law will provide eligible employees with the ability to accrue up to 40 hours of paid personal leave per year.  Unlike other paid leave laws around the country, Maine’s will be the first to allow the employees to use the paid leave for any purpose, including non-medical or personal reasons.
