Maryland's Pay Disparity Data Reporting Act: What Employers Need to Know About Record-keeping Requirements


Maryland employers need to know of their new statutory requirement to collect workforce data that previously was not required. Currently, Maryland employers are required under §3-305 of the Labor and Employer Article subtitled "Equal Pay for Equal Work," to maintain records related to the wages of their employees and their employees' job classifications. The maintenance requirement for those records is three years.

However, effective October 1, 2008, (courtesy of Maryland General Assembly House Bill 1156), employers will also be required by law to maintain records related to their employees' racial classifications and gender. Those records must also be maintained for a period of at least 3 years.
