Maryland House passes bill strengthening Equal Pay Act

On April 9, 2016, the Maryland House of Delegates passed a bill that enhanced protections for workers across the State. By a 100-36 margin, the House passed a bill that would bar employers from paying employees less on the basis of an employee's sex. In addition, this bill also bars unequal pay on the basis of gender identity. If this bill becomes law, Maryland would be one of the few states to bar unequal pay on the basis of gender identity.
