Wage Requirements Law


The Wage Requirement Law Program ensures workers on County funded projects receive livable wages. Contractors and subcontractors must pay their employees an hourly wage rate compliant with the annually adjusted rate established by the Montgomery County Wage Requirements Law on qualifying contracts. The County Council passed on June 11, 2002, and the County Executive signed on June 20, 2002, Bill 5-02, relating to Wage Requirements Law on Service Contracts. Please note that effective April 1, 2010, the exemption to the Wage Requirements Law for having fewer that 10 employees has been repealed.

The current Wage Requirements Law rate is $16.00 per hour through June 30, 2023.

The new Wage Requirements Law rate that goes into effect on July 1, 2023 through June 30, 2024 is $17.05 per hour.
