The Fair Housing Act (FHA) is a federal law that bans housing discrimination in just about all types of rental housing. The law forbids communities from denying housing to anyone—or treating them differently—based on race, color, religion, national origin, sex, disability, and familial status.
Owners, managers, and individual employees all may be held liable for a fair housing violation based on a broad range of discriminatory practices against those protected under the law.
In addition, the FHA bans discriminatory statements—by your employees or in your advertising—that indicates a preference, limitation, or discrimination based on race, color, religion, national origin, sex, disability, or familial status. And the law also prohibits retaliation against anyone for exercising her rights under fair housing law or assisting others who exercise that right.
