No Credit Discrimination:City Council Follows State

Posted on September 17th, 2011 in Green Housing, Market Conditions, Real Estate Videos.

All but 9 aldermen have signed on to a new ordinance that will prohibit city employers from discriminating against people based on credit history.

This is a positive and just move.

There will be exceptions for financial related employees.

Illinois has a law on the books already. The city ordinance is coming out of committee with more teeth than the state law.

This people under a huge burden of negative equity who have have hardship should be relived by this action.
