For those of you with business operations in Maryland, please note the following:

Maryland Employers:

Montgomery County, MD Employers:

  •  In addition to the recent minimum wage increase, the County Executive signed ban-the-box legislation on November 10th that delays when certain employers may inquire about an applicant’s criminal history or obtain related records.
