On October 1, 2016 Montgomery County's new Earned Sick and Safe Leave Law goes into effect. This law requires all employers operating and doing business in Montgomery County to provide at least some paid Sick Leave to employees performing work in the county. The law has many potential pitfalls regarding such issues as accruing and calculating the amount of leave, when leave can be used, and notice and recordkeeping requirements. This presents special challenges for home care businesses. In addition, home care business need to aware of already enacted and proposed future increases in the minimum wage in Montgomery County, Prince George’s County, and Baltimore as well as statewide, and of changes in the Federal minimum salary for exempt employees.


Materials from MNCHA's September 7, 2016 Webinar training on the new law are available here:

Dear MNCHA Members: 

On September 26, 2016 we bid farewell to Ann Horton and welcomed a new Executive Director to the Association. After almost 6 years at the helm of MNCHA, Ann will be moving on in her career, but will remain in the DC area and will continue to work in home care. You can expect to see her at MNCHA events and supporting MNCHA activities and initiatives. 

The MNCHA Board is excited to announce the new Executive Director of the Association, Angelo Terrana. Angelo comes to us from MNCHA member, Bayada, where he served as Director of Government Affairs. His outstanding experience in government affairs, communications and home care made him an excellent choice to support a bright future for MNCHA. He started on Monday, September 26, 2016.
