This paper discusses how the federal and Maryland state systems of government differ in their application of employment laws. For the most part, the State of Maryland utilizes most of the same employment laws as those mandated by the federal government. It shows that the Maryland Department of Labor, Licensing, and Regulation's Division of Labor and Industry is the governing body for wage and employment law in the state.

From the Paper:

"The minimum wage (with some exceptions) is $5.15 per hour in Maryland, just as it is at the federal level. The workweek is 40 hours, and any time worked over 40 hours must be paid as time-and-a-half. The exceptions to this are certain retail mechanics, parts-persons, or salespersons who sell or service cars, farm equipment, trailers or trucks, taxicab drivers, executive, administrative and professional employees who meet certain criteria, outside salesmen, commissioned employees, a child, parent, spouse, or other member of the employer's immediate family, and employees of a movie theater ("Maryland Guide," 2004). In addition, agricultural workers in the state must be paid overtime after working 60 hours in a week, and some health care institutions (not hospitals) and bowling alleys pay overtime after 48 hours worked in one week."
