SECTION 3-315
Married woman's right of action for wages
General Obligations (GOB) CHAPTER 24-A, ARTICLE 3, TITLE 3
§ 3-315. Married woman's right of action for wages. 1. A married woman
shall have a cause of action in her own sole and separate right for all
wages, salary, profits, compensation or other remuneration for which she
may render work, labor or services or which may be derived from any
trade, business or occupation carried on by her, and her husband shall
have no right of action therefor unless she or he with her knowledge and
consent has otherwise expressly agreed with the person obligated to pay
such wages, salary, profits, compensation or other remuneration.

2. In any action or proceeding in which a married woman or her husband
shall seek to recover wages, salary, profits, compensation or other
remuneration for which such married woman has rendered work, labor or
services or which was derived from any trade, business or occupation
carried on by her or in which the loss of such wages, salary, profits,
compensation or other remuneration shall be an item of damage claimed by
a married woman or her husband, the presumption of law in all such cases
shall be that such married woman is alone entitled thereto, unless the
contrary expressly appears.
