Discrimination Complaints on the Rise in Florida

January 14th, 2009 by flanews

Employment discrimination complaints are up in Florida.

The state Commission of Human Relations received more complaints in 2008 than any of the four previous years. State lawmakers and human rights advocates joined together today to take a stand against discrimination in the workplace and celebrate the 40 year anniversary of the states human right commission. Governor Charlie Crist said the state and the country have come a long way in mending race relations.

Each and every human being deserves the right to live their dreams and thats really what this commission is all about. Now Ive had the honor of working in the Attorney Generals office and now to be the 44th governor of Florida. Were going to have 44th president soon. I look forward to that. Talk about history, said Crist.

The Florida Commission on Human Relations works to eliminate discrimination in employment, housing, and state employee whistleblower retaliation. For more information on how to file a complaint visit the commissions website at http://fchr.state.fl.us
