Both Houses of Maryland Legislature Pass Clarification on Overtime

The Maryland House and Senate have passed identical overtime clarification bills (H.B. 214 and S.B. 694).

Upon signature by the Governor, the Maryland Wage Payment and Collections Law’s definition of “wage” will include “overtime wages.” If there is no bona fide dispute that wages were to be paid, the law, as it has for years, provides for trebles, as well as attorneys’ fees.
