Fair Housing Foundation Helps Family Reach Settlement on Discrimination Case
Long Beach, CA – July 16, 2020 – The Fair Housing Foundation (FHF) and the Department of Fair Employment and Housing (DFEH) settled a housing discrimination case against a Management Company, located in LA County. A resident manager of the Management Company discriminated against families with children by enforcing overly restrictive rules.
The complainant, residing in Bellflower, filed a complaint with FHF on June 19, 2018, alleging retaliation after she reported to the Management Company that the manager told the complainant that children were not allowed to play outside. As a result, the complainant was served with a sixty (60) day notice of termination of tenancy. The manager had complained about the unnecessary noise from the children.
