Montgomery County Society for Human Resource Management (MCSHRM) Chapter Newsletter

Darla McClure publishes MC SHRM Legislative Affairs Update for March 2013.

Legislative Update

There are many bills that have been proposed in this legislative session that will affect employers.

A few that we are watching closely are:

  1. an increase in the minimum wage to $8.25 in 2013, $9.00 in 2014 and $10.00 in 2015;
  2. providing employees with paid sick and safe leave that would accrue 1 hour for every 30 hours worked; and
  3. unpaid parental leave for up to 6 weeks for the birth or adoption of a child; provided however if the employer has over 50 or more employees it may have to provide paid leave.

These bills are subject to modification and may even be withdrawn. We will keep you updated as more information becomes available. It is a good idea to attend the “Legislative Update” seminar in the spring where we will discuss what bills have become law and when they go into effect.
