Posting Requirements 39A MRSA 406

A notice in a form as the board approves, stating that the employer has conformed to this Act, together with other information as the board determines, must be posted by the employer and kept posted by the employer in each of the employer's mills, factories or places of business. The notice must be conspicuous and posted in a place accessible to the employer's employees.

Form WCB 90 - Notice to Employees

 

For dates of injury on or after January 1, 2013, the notice period is 30 days instead of 90 days.

Because the notice period for injuries through and including December 31, 2012 is 90 days, and to allow a period for cases involving inability to give notice and/or mistakes of fact, both the new and old notice posters must be posted until at least June 30, 2013. Starting July 1, 2013, only the new poster is required to be displayed.
