An Act To Protect Earned Pay
Sec. 1. 26 MRSA 1193, sub- 5, as amended by PL 2011, c. 645, 8, is further amended to read:
If the remuneration under paragraph A is less than the benefits that would otherwise be due under this chapter, the individual is entitled to receive for that week, if otherwise eligible, benefits reduced by the amount of the remuneration, rounded to the nearest lower full dollar amount . Earned vacation pay that is paid to the individual prior to the individual’s being notified orally or in writing by the employer of the employer’s intent to sever the employment relationship is not considered remuneration for purposes of this subsection;
Under the current law, a person who receives or is scheduled to receive remuneration in the form of vacation pay in excess of 4 weeks’ wages or holiday pay is disqualified from receiving unemployment benefits for the week that remuneration is due. This bill removes those disqualifications.
