Florida Discrimination Law

Florida prohibits discrimination in employment, housing, public accommodations, and education on the basis of race, color, religion, sex, national origin, age, disability, or marital status.

The Florida Civil Rights Act of 1992 (FCRA) is the state law that prohibits discrimination. The FCRA applies to all employers, businesses, and organizations in Florida, regardless of size.

The FCRA prohibits discrimination in the following areas:

  • Employment: Hiring, firing, compensation, benefits, and other terms and conditions of employment
  • Housing: Buying, selling, renting, or financing housing
  • Public accommodations: Providing goods or services to the public
  • Education: Admission, enrollment, and treatment of students

If you believe that you have been discriminated against, you can file a complaint with the Florida Commission on Human Relations (FCHR). The FCHR is an independent state agency that investigates discrimination complaints.

The FCHR can order a variety of remedies, including:

  • Reinstatement
  • Back pay
  • Damages
  • Injunctive relief

If you are not satisfied with the FCHR’s decision, you can file a lawsuit in federal or state court.
