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.

(Return completed forms to the investigator named in the service packet, or to the regional office where the complaint was filed.)
