Maryland has released an updated poster and model policies regarding its sick and safe leave law, which is currently in effect.

Updated Poster and Model Policies
An employer must notify its employees that they are entitled to earned sick and safe leave under the law. The state has released an updated poster (in English and Spanish) for employer use. Additionally, model policies for employee handbooks or other employee benefits documents are available.

Note: These documents (as well as the FAQs discussed below) are intended to provide general guidance about the law's requirements and may be subject to change. The state is expected to release final guidance documents in the future.

Updated FAQs and Additional Resources
The state has also released updated FAQs that address various topics (e.g., applicability, accrual, use, verification) regarding the sick and safe leave law.

Additional resources (including guidance and executive orders) are available by clicking here.

Background
Under the law, an employer with 15 or more employees generally must provide an employee with paid earned sick and safe leave, while an employer with 14 or fewer employees must (at least) provide an employee with unpaid earned sick and safe leave. The law does not apply to an employee who (among other things) regularly works less than 12 hours a week.
