The Maryland Department of Labor, Licensing and Regulation (DLLR) recently released a required update to the minimum wage poster for Montgomery County. This updated labor law poster has a new revision date of 7/15.
Changes to the Law
Although the newer notice looks the same at first glance, the section concerning what to pay tipped workers has changed. Previously, the poster stated that employers “must pay at least 50% of the state minimum wage rate per hour.” Now, the poster provides a specific amount that must be paid. It reads: “Employers must pay at least $4.00 per hour.” It is essential to note that this new amount of $4.00, plus tips, must still equal at least the Montgomery County minimum wage, which is currently $9.55.
Prince George’s County Maryland Poster Still Valid
Since the Montgomery County minimum wage is so similar to the Prince George’s County law, we wrote to the Maryland DLLR office asking if there will be an update to the Prince George’s County poster as well. They responded that there is no current plan to update the Prince George’s County poster because the laws have separate tipped wage amounts.
