Sick Leave, Other Employment Legislation Pending in Montgomery County, MD

Montgomery County, Maryland is among a growing number of local jurisdictions across the country seeking to fill perceived gaps in protections for employees where federal or state legislators are gridlocked and unable to do so.  Currently pending before the County Council is Bill 60-14, Earned Sick and Safe Leave Act, as well as Bill 59-14  to accelerate phased in minimum wage increases in Montgomery County.   Both bills are likely to pass and employers should be working with their payroll processing departments and vendors now to prepare for the changes.
