Sexual harassment laws to be topic of workshop

The West Anne Arundel County Chamber of Commerce is planning a workshop Feb. 10 on sexual harassment laws.

Marcia Hall, executive director of the chamber, said it is imperative that business owners and workers understand the laws.

"It is an issue of real importance today," she said. "I think people need to know more details about it."

Jennifer Burdick, executive director of the Maryland Commission on Human Relations, will be the luncheon speaker at the seminar. Her topic is: "Sexual harassment: Are you guilty?"

George Snyder, a training specialist with the Maryland Department of Licensing and Regulation, will discuss wage and labor regulations, explain what signs need to be posted in the workplace and explain worker compensation, equal employment opportunity and unemployment insurance.

John Lancaster, executive assistant to the chairman of the president's committee on Employment of People with Disabilities, will explain the Americans with Disabilities Act and Gene Thomas and Carol Suarez, from the Maryland Office of the Comptroller, will talk about taxes.

The seminar, titled "Running a Business: Are you in compliance with the law?" is scheduled for Feb. 10 from 8:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the Fort Meade Officers' Club, in the 6600 block of Mapes Road.

The cost is $30 for chamber members and $60 for nonmembers. For more information, call Ms. Hall by Feb. 8 at 672-3422.
