Maine Overtime: What you need to know

Under Maine's overtime law, an employer must pay each employee overtime in the amount of 11/2 times the employee's regular rate for hours worked in excess of 40 in a workweek (ME Rev. Stat. Tit. 26 Sec. 664). Because this rate is the same as that prescribed by the federal law, the net effect of the state law is to extend overtime protections to workers not covered by the federal standard.

• Counselors at children's summer camps
• Students under the age of 19 working during school vacations at certain summer ...
