How You Are Protected 
Leave for Victims of Domestic Violence, Sexual Assault, or Stalking:
	You may take reasonable and necessary leave from employment if you, your child, spouse, or 
parent is a victim of domestic abuse, sexual assault, or stalking.  Title 26, § 850.
 Notice of  violation(s) must be reported within six months of the occurrence. If you are denied 
leave, a fine of up to $1,000 for each violation may be assessed against the employer. Additionally, 
the employer is liable for liquidated damages in an amount equal to three times the amount 
of total assessed fines. If you are terminated, you may elect either the liquidated damages or 
reemployment with the employer with back wages. 
Unemployment Benefit Eligibility: 
	If you voluntarily leave work, you may not be disqualified from receiving benefits if your leaving 
was necessary to protect yourself from domestic abuse, and you made all reasonable efforts to 
keep your job.  Title 26, §1193, §§1(A)4 
	You may not be disqualified from receiving benefits because of misconduct if your actions were 
based solely on the need to protect yourself or an immediate family member from domestic 
violence, and you made all reasonable efforts to keep your job.  Title 26, §1043, §§23(B)3
Maine laws protect victims of domestic violence, sexual assault, and stalking in
