Discrimination based on Religion
As with any other state or federally protected class, it is illegal to show a bias, preference or limitation based on religion. A common fair housing pitfall can occur with newsletters and other written communication concerning religious holidays. It is better to use “Holiday Party” rather than “Christmas Party” or “Hanukkah Party” so that no one perceives that they are being excluded based on their religious beliefs. Rules regarding the placement of holiday decorations or religious symbols should apply to all religions. Do not discuss religion with tenants or inquire about or make comments about religious beliefs.
