In addition to employment rights, Yezbak Law is committed to protecting our clients’ civil rights in housing, at school, and while accessing public resources.
Fair Housing, Discrimination in Education, Public Accessibility
The Fair Housing Act prohibits housing discrimination on the basis of race, color, national origin, religion, sex, disability, and familial status. Fair housing laws protect people from discrimination in housing transactions such as rentals, sales, lending, and insurance.
Discrimination in education occurs when a person (like a teacher, administrator, or another student) or a school takes unlawful action (or inaction) on the basis of age, disability, gender, national origin, race, or religion.
The Americans with Disabilities Act requires that State and local governments give people with disabilities an equal opportunity to benefit from all of their programs, services, and activities (e.g. public education, employment, transportation, recreation, health care, social services, courts, voting, and town meetings).
