On May 3, Governor Moore signed legislation (H988/S828) into law making several modifications to Maryland’s Family and Medical Leave Insurance program, which is currently under development. The most important changes affect the dates on which premium contributions and benefit payments will begin. Prior to passage of this legislation, premium contributions were going to begin on Oct. 1, 2023, but now they will begin on Oct. 1, 2024. Benefit payments were going to begin on January 1, 2025, but now they will begin on January 1, 2026. The total contribution rate is capped at 1.2% of an employee’s wages and will be adjusted annually beginning July 1, 2026. The contributions will be split 50-50 between the employer and the employee. We will continue to follow developments of Maryland’s Family and Medical Leave Insurance program.
