Under a new bill, Maryland's minimum wage will increase to $15.00 for all employers starting January 1, 2024 - a year earlier for large employers and two and a half years earlier for small employers compared to the increases scheduled under previous law.
Maryland employers that participate in a first-of-its-kind pilot program could receive a significant tax credit if they allow employees to reduce their work to four days per week without any reduction in pay.
In both states, employers may still prohibit marijuana use or possession in the workplace or on the employer's property.
Starting in 2025, covered employees in Maryland will be entitled to take up to 12 weeks of paid leave to care for a newborn child, to attend to a serious health condition and more.
