Maine requires pregnancy accommodations


Author: ADP Admin/Tuesday, July 30, 2019/Categories: Compliance Corner

Maine has enacted legislation (Legislative Document 666) that will require employers to provide reasonable accommodations to employees with pregnancy-related conditions, unless it would impose an undue hardship on the business. Legislative Document 666 takes effect September 19, 2019.

Under the law, a pregnancy-related condition is defined as a known limitation of an employee’s ability to perform the functions of a job due to pregnancy, childbirth, or related medical conditions, including lactation.

Reasonable accommodations for a pregnancy-related condition may include, but are not limited to providing:

·      More frequent or longer breaks;

·      Temporary modification in work schedules;

·      Seating or equipment;

·      Temporary relief from lifting requirements;

·      Temporary transfer to less strenuous or hazardous work; and

·      Breaks and a space to express breast milk in accordance with state law.

Compliance Recommendations:

Maine employers should review their policies, practices, and supervisor training to ensure compliance with Legislative Document 666.
