  • 2 Week Hold Back?? Maryland

    My new employer has a 2 week initial hold back of pay. Therefore, I didn't receive pay for my first 2 weeks but I will get that money if and when my employment here ends. Is this legal? I am a salaried employee.

    Yes it is very legal, it's called being paid in arrears. Most employers pay their employee this way.

      As long as that is the company's payroll policy to pay two weeks in arrears that is legal in MD (although note, there are some states where this is not). As long as they stay within MD regulations of paying employees at least every two weeks or twice a month (if semi-monthly payroll) then they are within the law.

      Your payroll department should be able to provide you with a printout of the company's scheduled payrolls and their corresponding period end dates.

        Yes, this is legal and not at all uncommon in MD.
        I post with the full knowledge and support of my employer, though the opinions rendered are my own and not necessarily representative of their position. In other words, I'm a free agent.
