USDOJ: Justice Department Settles Lawsuit Against Baltimore County, Maryland, Alleging Disability Discrimination

 The Justice Department today announced it has filed a complaint in the U.S. District Court for the District of Maryland against Baltimore County, Md., alleging that the county engaged in unlawful employment practices.  The department simultaneously filed a consent decree to resolve these allegations.  In its complaint, the department alleges that the county violated the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) by requiring employees to submit to medical examinations and disability-related inquiries without a proper reason, and by excluding applicants from emergency medical technician (EMT) positions because of their diabetes.
