  • Maryland state law applies federal USERRA rights to military servicemembers. See Private Employers.
  • Maryland has special rules for private employers that have employees who engage in an activity of a civil air patrol, civil defense, volunteer fire department or volunteer rescue squad, if the activity is in response to a governor-declared emergency and the employee submits proof of his or her required service. See Civil Air Patrol Leave.
  • Maryland's public sector employees are provided with certain rights and protections that are not available to private sector employees. See Public Employers.
