City of Austin Equal Employment / Fair Housing Office
The City of Austin Equal Employment & Fair Housing Office (EE/FHO) is empowered to enforce four City Ordinances and the following federal statutes: Title VII and Title VIII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, as amended, the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990 (ADA), and the Age Discrimination in Employment Act of 1967 (ADEA). The EE/FHO is also empowered to take charges, under the Equal Pay Act of 1963 (EPA). The EPA charges will be forwarded to EEOC for actual investigation and resolution.

Title VII of the Civil Rights Act, the ADEA, the ADA and the City's Employment Ordinance protect individuals from difference in treatment in their employment because of their race, color, sex, disability, age, religion and national origin. The Employment Ordinance also protects an individual from discrimination based on gender identity and sexual orientation.

The City's Housing Ordinance and the Fair Housing Act protect an individual in the area of housing (terms and conditions, rental, leasing, buying or selling) based on race, sex, religion, national origin, familial status, and physical or mental disability. The ordinance also protects an individual from discrimination based on age (18 years or older), status as a student, sexual orientation, gender identity and marital status.
