I found a workaround for the issue. If you add spaces to the last series label, it'll add whitespace and look fixed: For example: <cfchartseries seriesLabel="Total Maintenance/Testing ">

Multiple ways to achieve this. Width attribute of legend or layout attibute to specify the number of legend items on a single line.
