It is the policy of the Maryland Department of Transportation State Highway Administration (MDOTSHA) to maintain a strong Equal Opportunity/Affirmative Action Program. SHA is committed to uphold the Governor of Maryland’s policy for zero tolerance of any unfair employment practices as required under Executive Order 01.01.2017.16 Code of Fair Employment Practices. The policy states that ALL personnel actions concerning any employee or applicant for employment will be made based on merit and fitness, without regard to:
Additionally, MDOT SHA adheres to the requirements of state and federal non-discrimination statutes. The State’s Title 20 guarantees equal employment opportunities regardless of race, color, religion, ancestry, national origin, sex, age, marital status, sexual orientation, physical or mental disability, gender identity or expression, genetic information and pregnancy.
Federal statutes include:
Every MDOT SHA employee has the right to work in an environment that is free of both discrimination and any form of harassment. In strict compliance with Federal and State laws, any form of harassment, including sexual harassment, will not be tolerated.
Our goal is to promote employee involvement, teamwork, recognition and inclusion. As our workforce becomes more diverse, MDOT SHA will continue to promote Diversity Awareness Initiatives, sexual harassment training and other training experiences that will educate and enrich managers, supervisors and employees about their obligations, rights, and protections.
Responsibility for implementation of the Title VII Program has been assigned to various key officials, managers, and EEO personnel. However, all employees in MDOT SHA should work cooperatively to achieve equal opportunity and affirmative action throughout MDOT SHA.
