07.01.20.09 - Proposed Analysis - Department of Human Resources: Office of the SecretaryThe purpose of this action is to create a minimum frequency for site visits that is dependent upon the total grant award by the program. Grantees that are awarded $6,000 or less are narrow in scope and service delivery that do not require an annual in person site visit.

A higher level of scrutiny in the form of annual site visits is required for these providers to ensure that MEFP funds are used appropriately and in compliance with existing regulations. This threshold would allow the program to reallocate resources used for site visits to improve and enhance monitoring program compliance via receipts submitted as proof of purchase and activity reports documenting service delivery and outcomes.2/21/2017

09.32.01.05, 12, 15-1, 16, 24 - Proposed Analysis - Department of Labor, Licensing, and Regulation: Unemployment InsuranceThe purpose of this action is to amend COMAR 09.32.01.05(B) to clarify that the Secretary shall remove or credit benefit charges, subject to limitations set forth in Section 8-620(f)(2) of the Labor and Employment Article, of a reimburser previously charged only if the Secretary has recovered the benefits under Section 8-809 of the Labor and Employment Article. This clarification conforms to the current Unemployment Insurance Law. In addition, another purpose of this proposal is to modernize COMAR 09.32.01.12(C) by repealing obsolete language regarding magnetic media reporting for employment reports and to modernize 09.32.01.15-1 to clarify that employers may provide a report of work refusal via electronic means. The purpose of repealing 09.32.01.16(B) regarding interest on past due contributions and 09.32.01.24 regarding deletion of wages for aggravated misconduct is to delete outdated inaccurate provisions that do not conform to the Unemployment Insurance Law.2/3/2017

09.32.01.18 - Proposed Analysis - Department of Labor, Licensing, and Regulation: Unemployment InsuranceThe purpose of this action is to clarify the factors to be considered by the Secretary when determining whether a worker is classified as an independent contractor or is working in covered employment for the purpose of unemployment insurance coverage. The proper classification of workers impacts a business's tax obligations and a worker's eligibility for unemployment insurance benefits. The proposal removes certain out of date considerations, such as the specific reference to an independent contractor maintaining a listing in a telephone directory. The proposed regulation reflects the statutory requirement that the Secretary must determine that each of the three conditions found in Labor and Employment Article, § 2-205(a), Annotated Code of Maryland, must be satisfied by the employer before an independent contractor relationship will be found to exist. The proposed regulation revises and expands upon the current factors that may be considered by the Secretary in making the three required determinations and clarifies that each determination is based on the totality of the circumstances. The proposed regulation amends the order of the paragraphs in COMAR 09.32.01.18 so that the regulation addresses the three required determinations in the same order in which they appear in the statute.2/3/2017

09.32.01.21 - Proposed Analysis - Department of Labor, Licensing, and Regulation: Unemployment InsuranceThe purpose of this action is to amend COMAR 09.32.01.21 to clarify the application of § 8-613(c) of the Labor and Employment Article, which applies when an existing employer acquires the assets, business, organization, or trade of a predecessor employer and there is no common ownership, management, or control between the acquiring employer and the predecessor employer. Section 8-613 provides that for such acquisitions, the acquiring employer is a successor and shall be assigned a contribution rate that reflects its own experience with unemployment in combination with the percentage of the experience of the predecessor acquired. The proposed action clarifies that combined rates will not be assigned if the successor acquires less than 50% of the predecessor's workforce and less than 50% of the predecessor's assets, business, organization, or trade. When neither the percentage of workforce acquired nor the percentage of assets, business, organization, or trade acquired from the predecessor exceed the 50% threshold, the acquiring employer shall continue to pay unemployment insurance contributions at the previously assigned rate.2/3/2017

In addition, the proposal seeks to correct a citation in COMAR 09.32.02.08(C) regarding claims determinations during labor disputes. An additional purpose of the proposal is to repeal an obsolete regulation in COMAR 09.32.02.09 to conform to the current Maryland unemployment insurance statute. The proposal also seeks to amend COMAR 09.32.02.10 to clarify, consistent with the current Maryland unemployment insurance statute, that dependents' allowances shall be considered when determining partial benefits.2/3/2017
