The Broward County Human Rights Act gives the Broward County Professional Standards/Human Rights Section jurisdiction over three areas of unlawful discrimination:
• Employment (for employers who employ 5-14 employees)
• Housing (involving the sale or rental of housing with 4 or more units located in Broward County)
• Public Accommodation (all services provided to the public)
Unlawful discrimination occurs when one’s rights are infringed upon based on a protected class identified under federal, state and local law.
