Discrimination

Florida Commission on Human Relations

The FCHR is a state agency established by the Florida Human Rights Act in 1969 for the express purpose of enforcing Florida's anti-discrimination law. Subsequent laws expanded the authority of the Commission, culminating with the Civil Rights Act of 1992 that provides for punitive and compensatory damages, as well as attorney fees.
