PHRC Final Legal Orders

Below are PA Human Relations Commission final legal orders issued after a public hearing.  They are organized by the year issued and the basis of discrimination.  Many cases include discriminatory acts based on more than one factor or protected class (i.e. race, sex, disability, religion, etc.).  Orders are listed here in only one protected class category, so lists by basis of discrimination are not exhaustive. 

Note:  Most complaints are settled or closed for other reasons without getting to the public hearing stage.  Specific information on cases that settle or close for other reasons is typically not available to the public, though general information on cases filed is available in our annual reports.

NOTE:   Documents are being prepared for posting on this page.  Please be patient while we build our Final Order library.  If you need a specific final order or an example of an order with a particular basis of discrimination, please email us at or call 717-783-8266.
