Maryland Equal Pay, Employment for Minors

The state of Maryland Licensing and Regulation Division of Labor and Industry has made some changes to the required Equal Pay for Equal Work posting.  The changes are minor since there was no law change.  A paragraph explaining enforcement options for the employee was added, but there was no law change.

The state of Maryland DLLR (Department of Labor, Licensing and Regulation) has also released an updated Work Permit for Minors posting.  The only change made to this posting is the department logo used on the posting.  This is obviously a minor change and does not require an employer to update their employee labor law postings as of yet.

Visit National Safety Compliance's web site for more details of what is included in the Maryland Labor Law Poster - Laminated.

California & Massachusetts: Part-time employees accrue sick leave

On July 1, 2015, a new law goes into effect in both California and Massachusetts for part time employees to begin accruing sick time.  The California Division of Labor Standards Enforcement in the Office of the Labor Commissioner released the updated "Healthy Workplaces / Healthy Families Act of 2014 Paid Sick Leave" posting in November 2014.  National Safety Compliance updated their California Labor Law Poster with this new posting starting in January 2015.  The effective date on this new law is July 1, 2015.

The state of Massachusetts has not released an updated or new required posting to incorporate this new law that is also effective on July 1, 2015. National Safety Compliance has put their Massachusetts Labor Law Poster on hold awaiting the release of an anticipated change.
