Maryland DLLR Issues Sample Notice For Earned Sick And Safe Leave

The Maryland Department of Labor, Licensing and Regulation (DLLR) has issued a sample employee notice employers may use to comply with the Maryland Healthy Working Families Act’s (MHWFA) notice posting Requirement.

The notice summarizes the MHWFA’s accrual, leave usage, reporting, prohibited conduct, and complaint filing provisions as required by the sick and safe leave law.  With the MHWFA taking effect today (February 11, 2018), Maryland employers must comply with the law’s requirements, including the notice posting requirements.

Employers may use the DLLR’s model notice or a similar notice so long as it provides the requisite information regarding how sick and safe leave is accrued; the reasons sick and safe leave may be used; the prohibition against employers taking adverse action against employees who exercise rights under the MHWFA; the prohibition against making a complaint, bringing an action, or testifying in bad faith’ and how employees may report/complaint about alleged violations of the Act.
