The Wisconsin Fair Housing Law protects the rights of people in the rental or purchase of housing.
It is unlawful to discriminate against a person in housing because of that person's protected class. The protected classes are shown on the chart below.
All housing is covered under the law except when a person is seeking a roommate to share a dwelling.
