State employment laws identify minimum wage and pay day requirements, and regulate issues like labor union membership and the right to organize. Maryland has its own set of state employment laws. For instance, the current minimum wage (in 2014) is $7.25 per hour, with an automatic yearly increase up to $10.10 per hour as of 2018. Like most states, overtime is required for time worked beyond 40 hours in a week in Maryland.
