Maine Laws Governing the Employment of Minors: Sixteen and seventeen year-old students will be permitted work 6 days a week during school. Prior to the change, students in this age group were restricted to working a maximum of 4 days a week when school was open.
Students in this age group will also be allowed to work an additional 4 hours a week for a total of 24, previously restricted to 20, and as late as 10:15 p.m. on days preceding a school day, previously restricted to 10 p.m. The new law also removes language that allowed minors to work an additional 8 hours on a day of unscheduled school closure such a snow day.
