    STATE LEGISLATIVE ALERT

    EMAIL/CALL GOV. LARRY HOGAN AND
    URGE HIM TO VETO PAID LEAVE MANDATE BILL 
     

    Dear SHRM Members,

    Maryland's "Healthy Working Families Act" (HB 01) was passed on April 5, 2017. The legislation requires Maryland employers with 15 or more employees to provide all employees working at least twelve (12) hours per week a minimum 40 hours of paid sick leave per year, which if not front-end loaded must accrue at a rate of one hour for every 30 hours worked. Employers with fewer than 15 employees would be required to provide the same amount of leave but unpaid.

    In our 2017 survey of SHRM members in Maryland nearly 86% of respondents indicated they opposed this bill.

    Please contact Governor Hogan TODAY and ask him veto this bill, the fiscal note of which reads that the impact to business will be "significant."  

    Here is how YOU can make a difference:

    1. Send an email to Governor Hogan through SHRM's HR Policy Action Center;

    - Visit MD SHRM/SHRM's call to action HERE.
    - Fill out your contact information (be sure to enter your HOME mailing address).

    2. Place a call to Governor Hogan to urge him to veto this workplace mandate.
