A new Maryland Law, amending the Wage Payment Law, prohibits employers from printing employee social security numbers on paycheck. The new law takes effect on January 1, 2007.
The substance of the new law is this:
AN EMPLOYER MAY NOT PRINT OR CAUSE TO BE PRINTED AN EMPLOYEE'S SOCIAL SECURITY NUMBER ON THE EMPLOYEE'S WAGE PAYMENT CHECK, AN ATTACHMENT TO AN EMPLOYEE'S WAGE PAYMENT CHECK, A NOTICE OF DIRECT DEPOSIT OF AN EMPLOYEE'S WAGE, OR A NOTICE OF CREDIT OF AN EMPLOYEE'S WAGE TO A DEBIT CARD OR CARD ACCOUNT.
