Red Lion, PA asked in Employment Law for Maryland

Q: Question regarding Maryland Sick and Safe act

Q: I reside in Pennsylvania but work in Maryland. I need clarification on Maryland Sick and Safe Leave

Roughly a year ago I started a non contract position at a firm located in Maryland.

Our firm employees roughly 32 people

Recently I hade to take time off for surgery.

I wasn’t familiar with the Maryland Sick and Safe leave act. I questioned my HR rep. and she said not too worry. Our plan is much better.

So if I’m understanding this correctly. I should be given 1 hour leave per 30 hours worked.

She seemed confused and said she would email me my accrual rate. Then it should make sense.

She just sent it to me. Now I’m really confused

This is her reply

RE: Message from

Good talking to you

For your records your

accrual rate is .7692 for 40 hours per calendar year.

Best Regards,

Accounting/Human Resource Manager
