Pay Equity Laws for Maryland Employees

Every employee is deserving of dignity and respect. In Maryland, one important aspect of fulfilling these standards is providing equal pay for equal work. Sadly, many employers fail to provide this, and even worse, such matters can be difficult for workers to detect. That’s why it’s imperative to understand the legal protections available to you as a Maryland employee.

In Maryland, pay equity laws afford specific protections to workers, including:

  • The Equal Pay Act of 1963 – This federal law is a landmark legislation that prohibits wage discrimination based on gender. It requires employers to provide equal pay for equal work, regardless of gender. This law applies to all employers covered by the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) at the federal level.
  • The Equal Pay for Equal Work Act – In Maryland, the Equal Pay for Equal Work law affords additional protections to workers within the state by prohibiting pay discrimination between genders in similar jobs. Employers cannot pay employees of one sex or gender less than employees of the opposite sex or gender for substantially similar work. This law applies to all employers in Maryland, regardless of their size.

In addition to the above laws, it is essential to note that Maryland has also enacted other provisions to promote pay equity and protect workers:

  • Ban on Salary History Inquiries –Maryland has implemented a ban on salary history inquiries. This means that employers cannot ask job applicants about their salary history during the hiring process. This measure aims to prevent pay disparities from perpetuating based on past wages.
  • Wage Range Disclosure Requirement – Maryland employers are required to provide a wage range for available positions upon request by an applicant. This requirement ensures transparency and allows job seekers to better understand potential compensation.

If you suspect you were underpaid or a victim of wage discrimination in the Maryland workforce, it’s important to seek sound counsel from a qualified employment lawyer as soon as possible, as they can help you exercise your employee rights and demand the fair compensation you deserve.
