Law and Legal Resources
The Pennsylvania Human Relations Commission enforces commonwealth laws that prohibit discrimination: the
Pennsylvania Human Relations Act, or PHRA, which encompasses employment, housing, commercial property, education and public accommodations; and the
Pennsylvania Fair Educational Opportunities Act, or PFEOA, which is specific to postsecondary educational institutions and secondary and postsecondary vocational, secretarial, business and trade schools.
Here are some resources to help you become more familiar with anti-discrimination law and regulations, policies, procedures and case history.
Commission attorneys are available for educational presentations on civil law in PA and related issues.
