What is Veteran Discrimination?

Our nation’s veterans represent a diverse population and face many housing challenges, including discrimination. California’s Fair Housing and Employment Act now prohibits discrimination against members of the military and veterans. Though veterans and military service members are not a specific protected class under federal law, the Fair Housing Act offers them protection from discrimination based on disability, race, national origin, religion, sex, or familial status.
