September 10, 1996|By Vicki Wellford | Vicki Wellford,SPECIAL TO THE SUN

OWNERS OF small businesses have a lot to worry about. Recent court decisions have made it clear that businesses with fewer than 15 employees are no longer exempt from certain types of discrimination lawsuits.

Several of our chambers of commerce have put together a workshop, "Employment Discrimination Law and How it Affects All Size Employers," that will be held tomorrow at 8 a.m.

Panelists are Vicki Snyder from Human Resource Group Inc.; John Gray, an employment law professor and arbitrator; Del. Robert H. Kittleman, House minority leader; an employment law attorney and a representative from the Maryland Commission on Human Relations.

The workshop is being co-sponsored by the Greater Crofton, Greater Severna Park, West Anne Arundel County and North County chambers of commerce.

The two-and-a-half hour session will be at the Anne Arundel County Fire Headquarters, 8501 Veterans Highway, Millersville.

The cost is $10. Checks can be made payable to Human Resource Group Inc. For more information, call 410-721-9131.
