  • Consecutive Hours worked Maine

    Absent any specific language in a collective bargaining agreement are there any restrictions on how many consecutive hours / shifts and employee is allowed to work in the public safety field? I ssecifically referring to Police?

    Thanks in advance.

    Maine is one of only two states that sets such limits but I'm not where I can find them right now. Betty might know or I can look later. (I don't think they're specific to police workers or even those workers in public safety positions.)
    The above answer, whatever it is, assumes that no legally binding and enforceable contract or CBA says otherwise. If it does, then the terms of the contract or CBA apply.

      Maine: statute below re max. hrs.
      Too often we underestimate the power of a touch, a smile, a kind word, a listening ear, an honest compliment, or the smallest act of caring, all of which have the potential to turn a life around. Leo Buscaglia
