Maryland Federal Court Holds the Wage Claims Cannot be Released or Waived

Even if you signed a separation agreement with your former employer, you may still have a case for owed wages, including overtime pay, under Maryland wage laws and/or the federal Fair Labor Standards Act because of a recent Maryland federal court ruling.

In Johnson v. CRC Holdings, Inc., Civil No. JKB-16-2937, the Maryland federal court rejected an employer’s attempt to dismiss an overtime claim by its former employee.
