Training Overview

Discover the impact of CFPB’s discrimination clarification. Learn how it will impact your institution.

On March 9, the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB) issued an interpretive rule clarifying the prohibition against sex discrimination under the Equal Credit Opportunity Act (ECOA). This prohibition covers discrimination based on sexual orientation or gender identity.

Next, the CFPB will update its publications and examination guidance documents to reflect this interpretive rule. The agency will take enforcement action under ECOA to hold financial institutions accountable for any violations. You need to update your policies and procedures to ensure compliance.
