Attention Maryland Employers: Are You Ready For October 1?

As we previously reported, Maryland has passed several employment laws that go into effect on October 1, 2020.

In summary, the laws include a new mandatory mini-WARN Act, a ban on requesting an applicant’s salary history, a requirement that employers — on request — provide applicants the wage range for the position for which they applied, a prohibition against discriminating against applicants and employees on the basis of hair texture and hair styles, and a prohibition against using facial recognition technology in the job interview process.
