Maryland Paid Sick Leave Law Goes into Effect

SALISBURY, Md.- After a lengthy battle and numerous set backs, including vetoes by Gov. Larry Hogan, the state of Maryland now has a new paid sick leave policy in effect. 

The bill is called the Healthy Working Families Act, and it requires employers with 15 or more workers to give them paid time off if they get sick.

Most employers already provide paid sick leave to employees. However, analysts say roughly 700,000 working Marylanders who didn't have time off before will benefit from the bill.
