Fair Housing

AB 2617 (Weber)

Civil rights: waiver of rights.



Current civil rights provisions provide civil remedies for violations of their provisions. This bill would prohibit a person from requiring a waiver of the protections afforded under those provisions as a condition of entering into a contract for the provision of goods or services, including the right to file and pursue a civil action or complaint with, or otherwise notify, the Attorney General or any other public prosecutor, or law enforcement agency, the Department of Fair Employment and Housing, or any court or other governmental entity. The bill expressly provides that state laws that absolutely prohibit a waiver in leases remain intact.
