Maryland Adopts Federal Overtime Standards For White Collar Exemptions

Months after the United States Department of Labor adopted new regulations redefining the white collar overtime exemptions under the Fair Labor Standards Act, the Maryland Department of Labor adopts the same standards. (Maryland has its own overtime law.)

Administrative Employees

Executive Employees

Outside Salespeople

Professional Employees

Computer-Related Employees

Maryland's delay in adopting the new standards could raise an interesting question as to the law that applies to state law overtime claims arising before the new standards became effective.
