Comments Due Aug 17 on Paid Leave Contributions Discussion Document

The Maryland Department of Labor has released a discussion document on draft regulations overseeing contributions for the state’s paid leave benefit. Written comments are due on August 17.

The Maryland Department of Labor’s FAMLI Division — tasked with implementing and guiding the statewide Family and Medical Leave Insurance (FAMLI) law — has released a “discussion document” on appeals processes for stakeholders to weigh in on.

Details on the date and time of the next meeting of stakeholders will be released on Monday, August 14.

An email from the FAMLI Division states:

Many stakeholders submitted answers in response to the questions we posed in the Contributions Discussion Document. Attached is a draft outline of possible rules regarding contributions that reflects stakeholder feedback we received. We welcome additional comments, feedback and suggestions as we further refine the text. Written comments can be submitted via email to by August 17. All written comments will become part of the public record. We look forward to hearing your input.

Please note that the invitation for the next public engagement session and Claims Discussion Document are scheduled to be sent on Monday.

All oral and written comments will become part of the public record.

MACo plans to submit written and oral comments for all 24 counties. However, it is strongly encouraged that individual counties also offer feedback for their county.
