Do You Need a Maryland Harassment Lawyer?
Have you been the victim of unfair retaliation because you reported sexual harassment in your workplace?
- Have you, yourself, been the subject of sexual harassment?
- Do you fear coming into work because your supervisor or colleagues continually harass you?
In addition to federal prohibitions on sexual harassment, Maryland workers are also subject to the workplace harassment protections available under the Maryland Fair Employment Practices Act (“FEPA”). FEPA makes it unlawful for an employer with fifteen or more employees to discriminate or harass employees on the basis of their gender, age, race, or other protected attributes. FEPA also protects employees from retaliation when those employees disclose or object to practices that may constitute sexual harassment. If you have lost your position as a result of unlawful harassment or retaliation, FEPA may be able to help get your job back.
