Lesson Learning Objective

By the end of this lesson, you will be able to:

  • Understand various examples of what comprises fair housing compliance in California.

In the early days of the civil rights movement, California was at its forefront. Currently, the state’s fair housing laws offer more protections than the Federal Fair Housing Act. The California Fair Employment and Housing Act (FEHA), which was enacted in 1959, extends the federal Fair Housing Act’s definition of protected classes beyond the established seven categories. The following are the additional protected classes:

  • Marital status
  • Sexual orientation
  • Gender identity
  • Genetic information
  • Age
  • Medical condition
  • Ancestry
  • Source of income
  • Perception
  • Association
