Maine Revised Statutes

§2703. Residency requirement; ordinances and collective bargaining

A municipality may not enact any ordinance which requires employees to reside within the boundaries of the municipality as a condition of employment, nor may collective bargaining agreements contain these strict requirements. A municipality may negotiate collective bargaining agreements or, if the municipality does not engage in collective bargaining, enact ordinances that require employees to reside within a specified distance or a specific response time of a facility where those provisions represent a legitimate job requirement, and provided that the ordinances do not apply to employees already employed when the ordinance takes effect.
