The Fair Housing Act protects people from discrimination when they are renting, buying, or securing financing for any housing. The prohibitions specifically cover discrimination because of race, color, national origin, religion, sex, disability and the presence of children. Fair Housing training is a crucial part of a company’s Fair Housing policy. Good workplace Fair Housing policies broaden housing choices for home seekers and help ensure violations are avoided.
