New Law Phases Out Sub-Minimum Wages for Disabled Workers

WINDSOR MILL – Legislation to end the payment of sub-minimum wages to disabled workers in Maryland takes effect Oct. 1.

Under the Ken Capone Equal Employment Act, which was passed by Maryland legislature last spring, the sub-minimum wages will be phased out over the next four years.

This will cause 36 employers and agencies across the state, one of them being Benedictine School for Exceptional Children, to have to make changes.
