Maine Extends Scope of Its Whistleblowers’ Protection Act

Posted on

On April 12, 2022, Maine adopted LD 1889, a bill that extends the scope of the state’s Whistleblowers’ Protection Act (the Act) to include employees who work under a collective bargaining agreement. The amendment goes into effect July 19, 2022. Specifically, LD 1889 repeals a section of the Act that the Maine Supreme Judicial Court interpreted in Nadeau v. Twin Rivers Paper Company, LLC as a bar to enforcement of the Act in many cases in which a collective bargaining agreement is in place.
