According to a press release from the Maine Department of Labor, the state’s “Back To Work” grant program which awarded a payment of $ 1,500 to new workers who started a job before July 25 has now been amended and expanded.
The program that was rolled out last month will now be extended with full payment of the $ 1,500 to continue until the end of the program date, July 25. The payment was initially to be reduced to a one-time payment of $ 1,000 on July 1.
Another change that the DOL has implemented according to the state press release, is to now retroactively cover part-time workers who work at least 20 hours per week for a single employer and no longer receive unemployment benefits. The major program will give part-time workers a half payment of $ 750 until the program ends.
