BREAKING NEWS: Gov. Hogan pitches mandatory paid leave bill

BREAKING NEWS: As the Maryland Chamber of Commerce anticipated, Gov. Larry Hogan has pitched mandatory paid leave legislation for the upcoming General Assembly session, set to begin Jan. 11. The Baltimore Business Journal reports that the plan requires employers to offer at least 40 hours per year of paid sick leave for full-time employees. Companies with existing policies, the report states, will not be required to make changes, and existing collective bargaining agreements will also remain unaltered.

The Maryland Chamber has not yet seen the bill, and is therefore reserving comment, but will share observations and analysis upon a full review of the governor’s proposal.
