Empowering workers to combat wage theft: The nuts and bolts of Maryland’s new Lien for Unpaid Wages Law


Justice for Breakfast discussion series

November 12, 2014 ~ 8:15 am

Workers deserve to be paid fully and fairly for their labor. But all too often employers steal wages by paying less than minimum wage, refusing to pay overtime, forcing low-wage employees to work off the clock, stealing tips, withholding pay, and even not paying workers at all. Maryland’s Lien for Unpaid Wages law, enacted in 2013, is designed to combat wage theft by allowing workers to put a lien on their employer’s property in order to recover their unpaid wages swiftly and before the employer has a chance to dispose of or hide assets. Join us to discuss efforts to ensure that workers and advocates know about and can use the Lien for Unpaid Wages.
