Workplace discrimination against the disabled

Employers in Maryland with 15 or more workers must comply with the Americans with Disabilities Act, which was passed by Congress in 1990. The ADA contains several provisions that may be subject to interpretation. The act does not include a definitive list of covered disabilities, and one of its primary provisions requires employers to take reasonable steps to accommodate disabled workers.

The basics of harassment as employment discrimination

Federal law considers harassment a type of employment discrimination. This means that job applicants and workers in Maryland, or any other state, cannot be harassed because of their gender, color, race, religion, age or national origin. Harassment based on genetics, disabilities or in retaliation for participating in an investigation or proceeding related to the job is also prohibited under discrimination laws.
