Is a non profit higher education institution located outside of Maryland who may employ residents of Montgomery, Maryland remotely subject to this law? We do not have any "business owners" in MD.
coliver, here is a response from Maryland Employment Law Letter attorney editor David Stevens. In case you need it, his contact info can be found at the end of the note. tk----------Although we do not represent youand cannot provide legal advice, you may want to review Section 27-76(b) of theMontgomery County Code, which defines an “employer” for purposes of this law asa person or entity “operating and doing business in the County that employs 1or more persons in the County in addition to the owners.” The law alsocontains a definition of employee that excludes certain limited categories ofworkers. We would suggest that you speak with legal counsel concerningyour potential obligations under this law in advance of the law’s October 1,2016 effective date.
