Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 prohibits discrimination in employment based upon race, color, sex, national origin, pregnancy and religion.
The Maryland Department of Transportation State Highway Administration (MDOTSHA) maintains a strong Equal Opportunity/Affirmative Action Program. MDOT SHA upholds 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. 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 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 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 promote Diversity Awareness Initiatives, sexual harassment training and other training to educate and enrich managers, supervisors and employees about their obligations, rights, and protections.
Implementation of the Title VII Program is assigned to key officials, managers, and Equal Employment Opportunity (EEO) personnel. However, all employees in MDOT SHA should work cooperatively to achieve equal opportunity and affirmative action throughout MDOT SHA.
