ANNAPOLIS (March 15, 2023) – NFIB State Director Mike O’Halloran issued the following statement regarding the Maryland Senate Finance Committee’s passage late yesterday of paid leave legislation:
“The legislature is passing up an opportunity to create a program that works for employees and employers. The business community offered reasonable and responsible amendments to do that. Unfortunately, they were not accepted. Instead, Maryland job creators will have to adapt to a costly and confusing paid leave program that creates more red tape and less certainty.”
