Paid Sick Leave Mandate Defeated

Legislation to require employers of any size to provide paid sick leave for employees was withdrawn by the sponsor.

The Maryland Chamber opposed the bill. Despite the bill’s good intentions, the Chamber urged lawmakers to recognize the impact mandated benefit laws have on Maryland employers. Requiring employers to provide sick or other types of leave creates economic and practical difficulties for businesses, particularly smaller companies.

Thank you to the many business owners who voiced their opposition and told their lawmakers how this mandate would impact their business.
