Sec. 2. 26 MRSA §625-B, sub-§9, as enacted by PL 2007, c. 333, §2, is amended to read:
A person that violates subsection 6 or subsection 6-A commits a civil violation for which a fine of $500 per day may be adjudged, except that a fine may not be adjudged if the closing is necessitated by a physical calamity or the final order of a federal, state or local government agency, or if the failure to give notice is due to unforeseen circumstances. A fine imposed on a person that violates subsection 6-A may not be collected by the Department of Labor to the extent such collection prevents the violator from making all payments required under subsection 2.
