Demystifying the Fair Housing Discrimination Ruling, Disparate Impact and New Ruling By HUD in April, 2016

The United States Supreme Court on June 25, 2015 issued a long awaited fair housing discrimination ruling. And again on April 4, 2016, HUD released a guidance letter regarding blanket criminal background checks. This is basically a type of disparate impact that affects those with criminal backgrounds.

In this session expert speaker Paul Flogstad will examine in detail all facets of the discrimination ruling by the Supreme Court and what it means under fair housing guidelines. He will also review the new HUD guidance letter and examine the changes in policies and procedures required by multifamily properties to implement and comply with this latest guidance.

This session will explore the basics of fair housing, disparate impact and the new HUD ruling. There are going to be many changes coming because of this new guidance and after this session, you will understand the implications of all of these rulings and guidance.
