As we previously reported, earlier this year Maryland passed a number of employment laws that, among other things, prohibit use of facial recognition technology, wage history inquires and hairstyle discrimination, and revise the state’s mini-WARN act.  These laws will take effect on October 1, 2020.  For more detail on the new laws, see our original post, which is available here.

Maryland employers should review become familiar with these new requirements and consult with counsel to ensure they will be in compliance with the new laws when they go into effect.
