Maryland Legislative Session Ends

Governor O’Malley, after the Maryland legislature adjourned, signed first the Maryland False Claims Act. While the relators’ bar is not 100% happy with the legislation, nonetheless the camel’s nose is now under the tent. To read the actual statute, go here.

We earlier blogged about the amendment to the Maryland Wage Payment & Collection Act regarding overtime as being included in that statute’s definition of wages. That legislation was enacted, and is available here.

A proposed amendment to the Maryland Human Relations Law to include “family responsibilities” as a protected class failed to get out of committee.
