Maryland Employment Law FAQ

What is the Minimum Wage in Maryland?

As of January 2022, the minimum wage in Maryland increased from $12.20 to $12.50 an hour. For employees who are tipped, there is a minimum cash wage of $3.63 an hour for those whose earnings plus tips are at least equal to the minimum wage rate in Maryland.

Are 15-minute Breaks Required by Law in Maryland?

If you are an employee who is covered by the Shift Break Law, then you are entitled to breaks based on the hours you have worked.

If you work:

  • For more than 4 hours, but 6 or fewer consecutive hours, then no break is required
  • For 4 to 6 consecutive hours, you may have a 15-minute break. If you work less than 6 consecutive hours, you may choose to waive the 15-minute. break through a written agreement between you and your employer.
  • For more than 6 consecutive hours, you’re entitled to a 30-min. break
  • 8 or more consecutive hours, you may have a 30-min. break with a 15-min. break for every additional 4 consecutive hours that you work. The “additional consecutive hours” begin after your previous break. For example, if you work a 10-hour shift and you are given a 30-min. Break on your 5th hour, then you are entitled to a 15-min. Break at hour 9.
    • Note: If you are entitled to a 30-min. break, then you are not entitled to a 15-min. break as well.
