Created in 1969 to enforce the Florida Civil Rights Act, the Florida Commission on Human Rights is charged with preventing unlawful discrimination by ensuring all Floridians have access to opportunities in employment, housing and certain public accommodations. In addition, the commission seeks to promote mutual respect among groups through education and partnerships.
Initially created as a community relations-based agency, in 1977 the role of the commission was expanded to also become an enforcement agency. As such, the commission now investigates employment discrimination through administrative and legal channels. For many years the FCHR’s main goal has been dismissing cases within 180 days of a charge being filed, which prevents victims of discrimination from filing a lawsuit. DO NOT FILE AN FCHR CHARGE IF THERE IS ANOTHER AGENCY AVAILABLE FOR FILING!
In his 25 years of practice in discrimination law, Randy Fleischer has witnessed the actions of the Florida Commission on Human Rights on numerous occasions. He has an intimate knowledge of the inner workings of the commission not only through legal proceedings while representing his clients, but also due to the fact that he served as the Chair of the Broward County Human Rights Board and also served on Broward District’s School Board Diversity Committee. Mr. Fleischer rarely allows his clients to file with the FCHR, if you have already done that, there may be another way to protect your rights, but you should contact Mr. Fleischer without delay.
