An update on the recently passed “Maryland Healthy Working Families Act” was provided by Darryl McCallum from Shawe Rosenthal at yesterday’s Anne Arundel County Regional Meeting . I am sharing the attached information with all MHLA members, regardless of your location, since this law applies to every employer in the state and is currently scheduled to take effect on February 11, 2018. Please click here to view the attachment.
Additionally, emergency legislation has been introduced that would postpone enforcement of this new law by 60 days. However, compliance – including the commencement of SSL accrual – is still required as of the February 11 effective date.
We continue to recommend that you familiarize yourself, your HR and payroll departments with the many technical requirements of this legislation, as it requires specific record keeping and more.
Please contact us if you have any questions.
