Last week, we reported that the General Assembly had overridden Governor Hogan’s veto of the Maryland Healthy Working Families Act, and that employers in Maryland would be required to provide paid sick leave as soon as February 11, 2018. An emergency bill was introduced yesterday to delay the implementation of that Act for 60 days, which would give employers some breathing room to revise and implement their policies. Senate President Mike Miller had previously indicated a willingness to consider a brief delay, so there is some cautious optimism that some delay will be granted. Our current information is that a vote has been scheduled for tomorrow, January 24. We will continue to keep you up to date as new events occur.
