The California Department of Fair Employment and Housing (DFEH) produced "Fair Housing 101" to educatw Californians about their right to be free from discrimination in housing under the Fair Employment and Housing Act (FEHA), Government Code section 12900 et seq. Among other protections, this video shows that a prospective tenant is protected from unlawful screening questions by the landlord that discriminate against her on marital and familial status, disability, source of income, and need for a companion animal because of a disability. The DFEH is California's state civil rights agency, which enforces the FEHA, Unruh Civil Rights Act, Ralphs Civil Rights Act and Disabled Persons Act.
