Maine Equal Pay Law
The Equal Pay Law is an equal opportunity law poster by the Maine Department Of Labor. This is an optional poster, so while it is recommended that you post this if it is relevant to your employees, you are not required to by the Department Of Labor.
This poster is optional to post and describes the right that employees have for getting paid the same amount regardless of sex for the same work, what questions to ask yourself if you feel like you are being discriminated against, and who to turn to should you be discriminated against.
