In the past, many laws were biased against people with disabilities, but this has changed in recent years. People with disabilities now have the same freedom, equality and self-government as others. This article provides a comprehensive guide to the laws that guarantee the rights of people with disabilities in Bellevue, Idaho. It is illegal to discriminate against people with disabilities when selling or renting a home.
This includes denying a home to a buyer or renter because of their disability, or the disability of someone related to them or who intends to live in the residence. The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) authorizes the Department of Justice (DOJ) to provide technical assistance to individuals and entities that have rights or responsibilities under the Act. The Idaho Human Rights Act and the ADA also prohibit employment discrimination against people with disabilities. The statutes of the Idaho Code and the regulations that enforce them can be found on the Department of Administration's website. This guidance document is not intended to be a final action by the agency, has no legally binding effect, and may be rescinded or modified at the Department's sole discretion, in accordance with applicable laws.
