Maryland legislature passes expansion of equal pay law

ANNAPOLIS, Md. (AP) — The Maryland General Assembly has passed an expansion of the state’s equal pay law.

The House of Delegates gave the bill final approval on a 100-36 vote Saturday. The bill strengthens state law that prohibits pay discrimination based on gender. The measure also prohibits discrimination based on gender identity.

It prohibits businesses from retaliating against employees for discussing or disclosing salaries.

As long as we can still pay better performing employees more than lower performing employees - not much has changed as this was the law already for a while.

From a HR / Management perspective, going to the doctor for morning sickness or 'that time of the month' has a great potential to impact your job long as that reality continues to exist, the reality of differing compensation will also exist - but not solely for the gender reason.
