As you likely have heard, mandatory (paid) sick and safe leave is now a reality in Maryland. The “Healthy Working Families Act” (“MHWFA”), which is set to become effective February 11, 2018, creates a number of new obligations for Maryland employers.
On Friday, February 2, 2018, Kollman & Saucier, P.A., will conduct a free 75-minute webinar on the MHWFA from 11:45 am to 1:00 p.m. EST. Garrett Wozniak, Randi Hyatt, and Eric Paltell will explain the requirements of the new law, answer your questions, and provide compliance recommendations while Maryland employers await more specific guidance from the Department of Labor, Licensing, and Regulation. Garrett, Randi and Eric will address a number of topics, including:
- Who is and is not covered?
- Why and how sick and safe leave may be used?
- Sick and safe leave accrual and tracking.
- Notice, record-keeping, and verification under the MHWFA.
- Prohibitions and enforcement.
- Impact on existing leave policies.
