Maryland Employment Law, Second Edition is the first book to bring together and comprehensively explain three interwoven fields of employment law in Maryland - contracts, torts, and discrimination law. It gives lawyers and personnel professionals a quick and handy reference to the present state of Maryland employment law, and it provides litigators with a thorough analysis of each cause of action.
The most recent update of Maryland Employment Law contains discussions of the following cases:
Chapter 5: Employment Torts
In Lawson v. Bowie State Univ., ___ Md. ___, 26 A.3d 866, the Maryland Court of Appeals held that an employee does not lose protection under the Maryland Whistleblower Act merely because his motivation for reporting alleged misconduct of others was personal rather than based on a desire to correct wrongdoing.
In Ruffin Hotel Corp. of Maryland, Inc. v. Gasper, 418 Md. 594, 17 A.3d 676, the Maryland Court of Appeals held that the plaintiff's negligent hiring claim -- which was based on allegations that she was terminated for making complaints of sexual harassment -- was not preempted by federal, state, or local anti-discrimination statutes.
Chapter 6: Maryland Wage Law
In Butler v. DirectSat, LLC, 800 F. Supp.2d 662, the Maryland Federal District Court held that plaintiffs' claim that they were entitled to overtime compensation could not be brought under the Maryland Wage Payment and Collection Act because they did not allege that their employer failed to pay them overtime on a regular basis or failed to make such payments upon the termination of their employment.
Chapter 7: Employment Discrimination
In Wal-Mart Stores, Inc. v. Dukes, ___ U.S. ___, 131 S. Ct. 2541, the United States Supreme Court held that plaintiffs could not bring an employment discrimination class action challenging promotion denials and pay disparities based on allegations that Wal-Mart gave local supervisors discretion over pay and promotion decisions.
