Governor Directs Department of Labor to Respond to CenterPoint Closure
May 28, 2010
AUGUSTA – Governor John E. Baldacci today directed the Maine Department of Labor to work with employees affected by the unexpected closure of CenterPoint, a call center in York County.
Concerned about the workers, the abrupt nature of the closure and news reports that the owner felt compelled to have police on location when workers were informed, Governor Baldacci directed the Department of Labor to begin work on a rapid response session for workers and to ensure that all earned wages are paid.
“We will make sure that the law is enforced and that the workers receive what is owed to them,” Governor Baldacci said. “In addition, the Department of Labor will help all the impacted workers understand the benefits available to them.”
The rapid response session has not been scheduled.
