The Employment Law Center of Maryland is the state's only 501(c)(3) nonprofit employment law firm.
Our Maryland employment lawyers represent economically distressed Maryland workers with discrimination, harassment, and wrongful termination cases—at a fraction of the cost of traditional employment law firms.
We demand a future where the well-being of workers is a business priority, workplaces are equitable, diverse, and inclusive, and every worker is treated with the respect and dignity they deserve.
We hold Maryland employers accountable in every Maryland state and federal court.
We sue bad bosses.
For workers like you.
