Welcome Page

It is the policy of the Maryland State Highway Administration (SHA) to maintain a strong Equal Opportunity/Affirmative Action Program. SHA is committed to uphold the Governor of Marylandís policy for zero tolerance of any unfair employment practices as required under Executive Order 01.01.1995.19 Code of Fair Employment Practices. The policy states that ALL personnel actions concerning any employeeor applicant for employment will be taken on the basis of merit and fitness, without regard to:

Age National Origin
Ancestry Race
Color Political or Religious Affiliation, Belief or Opinion
Creed Sexual Orientation
Marital Status Mental or Physical Disability

Additionally, SHA adheres to the requirements of Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 which prohibits discrimination in employment based on race, color, religion and national origin. This commitment extends to all SHA programs and employment actions.

Every 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, 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 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 SHA should work cooperatively in order to achieve equal opportunity and affirmative action throughout SHA.
