Mandatory Paid Leave Compliance Learn what you need to do to be in compliance with the new Mandatory Paid  Leave Law (HB1) recently passed by the MD General Assembly Presented by: Douglas W. Desmarais Smith & Downey, P.A. On January 12, 2018, the Maryland General Assembly overrode Governor Hogan’s veto of 2017’s mandatory paid leave law, House Bill 1. Therefore, Maryland employers are now required to provide paid leave to employees. As of now, per state legislative guidelines, this law will take effect on February 11, 2018, though the Maryland Chamber plans to request an extension. What Should Maryland Employers Do? Maryland employers should plan to review any existing sick leave or PTO policies to ensure that they comply with the very technical requirements of this new law. Or if an employer does not yet provide such leave, it should develop the appropriate sick leave policies and procedures in advance of the law’s effective date. Although the DLLR will be issuing regulations and model documents to assist employers in complying with the law, it is unclear if these will be released prior to the current effective date of February 11, 2018. This team of employment law attorneys will help you navigate these new requirements and insure that you are in compliance!

THE HOTEL NEPENTHE A Play By John Kuntz Directed by Alex Lonati   Through the twisting, winding corridors of the mind lies a world both chillingly relatable and thoroughly alien. As the settings and characters shift and morph through a series of delightfully turbulent vignettes, we are drawn down a rabbit hole of the familiar and the bizarre, held captive by endless parallel universes that seep from the stage to consume our very being.The Hotel Nepenthe is a perilously absurd romp through the mysteries of human nature, the ripples of fairy wings and alternate realities, and the search for meaning from within the abyss. @brownboxtheatre | #NepentheBB
