Rights of employees and applicants:
No one can be denied employment because of refusing to answer a pre-employment inquiry that is unlawful under the Maine Human Rights Act or Maine Human Rights Commission Rules.

A conviction is not an automatic bar to obtaining an occupational or professional license; only convictions that directly relate to the profession or occupation; that include dishonesty or false statements; that are subject to imprisonment for more than one year; or involve sexual misconduct on the part of a licensee may be considered.

Special situations:
Liquor retailers may not employ anyone convicted of selling liquor to minors or selling liquor without a license within the past two years (for a first offense), or within the past five years (for a second offense).

Agency guidelines for pre-employment inquiries: Maine Human Rights Commission, Publications, "Pre-Employment Inquiry Guidelines."
