An Act To Revise Maine's Unemployment Compensation Laws

Be it enacted by the People of the State of Maine as follows:

Sec. 1. 26 MRSA §1043, sub-§11, ¶H  is enacted to read:

H Notwithstanding any other provisions of this section, "employment" does not include service provided by a temporary employee hired solely to perform services in place of a regular employee who is on family medical leave under chapter 7, subchapter 6-A.


This bill amends the definition of "employment" in the unemployment compensation laws to exclude the services provided by a temporary employee hired solely to fill in for a regular employee while the regular employee is on family medical leave. An employer of a temporary employee in this situation cannot be charged for unemployment benefits for that temporary employee.
