​Chapters 738 & 739 of the 2018 Acts of the Maryland General Assembly require each employer with 50 or more employees in the State of Maryland to electronically submit to the Commission on Civil Rights answers to a short survey on:

(1) the number of settlements made by or on behalf of the employer after an allegation of sexual harassment by an employee;

(2) the number of times the employer has paid a settlement to resolve a sexual harassment allegation against the same employee over the past 10 years of employment*; and

(3) the number of settlements made after an allegation of sexual harassment that included a provision requiring both parties to keep the terms of the settlement confidential.

*If an answer is provided to Question 2, you will have to answer the following question as well: "Whether the employer took personnel action against an employee who was the subject of a settlement."

The survey for the reporting period through July 1, 2020, is now live. Any responses submitted for this survey will not be used for the July 1, 2022, reporting period.
