Are You Being Discriminated Against?
Carolina Human Affairs Commission is a state government agency which
enforces the South Carolina Fair Housing Law. If you think you have been
discriminated against in housing, you should contact the Commission. The
Commission will investigate your complaint to see if the law was broken.
If there was a violation, the commission can
help you get certain legal remedies to which you may be entitled. Most of the time, the commission can settle housing discrimination complaints quickly and easily. If it is necessary, the Commission may take discrimination cases to a hearing or to court.
Discrimination can be very subtle. Often people may suspect they have been discriminated against, but they are not sure they can prove it. If this happens to you, call the Commission anyway. Our investigators can often uncover discrimination the average person cannot detect. If you do not contact the Commission, you may never know if there was something that could have been done about it.
Sometimes people worry about what might happen if, after an investigation, it turns out there is no proof of discrimination. The answer is nothing! If you believe that you are being discriminated against, you have the right to file a complaint. No one can take any action against you for doing so, even if it turns out there was no discrimination.
If you think you have been discriminated against, we want to hear from you.
