Legal Briefs & Testimony

The National Women’s Law Center submitted testimony to the House Committee on Economic Matters and the Senate Finance Committee in Maryland in support of H.B. 1175/S.B. 664, the Fair Wages, Scheduling, and Benefits Act. This legislation would provide crucial protections from difficult scheduling practices that undermine workers’ ability to support themselves and their families—protections that are particularly important to women, who are disproportionately affected by unfair scheduling practices.
