Event Description

Get Familiar with the Federal Fair Housing Act (FHA)—Without Ignoring State and Local Protections!

It goes without saying that you should be familiar with the federal Fair Housing Act (FHA). But did you know that many state and local municipalities adopt their own civil rights laws specific to the housing market? As a housing provider, you’re liable for knowing, following, and keeping abreast of changes to all of these fair housing protections. Sometimes, state and local protected classes mirror the federal protected classes, but sometimes they’re quite different. To stay fully compliant, you need to be conversant not only with the FHA, but also with the applicable state and local laws.

Learn how to stay fully compliant and protect your business interests in this webinar by industry expert Jo Becker. Becker will review the 7 federally protected classes, and provide examples of additional protected classes that are sometimes added by state or local jurisdictions. She’ll also explain how alleged fair housing violations are processed, along with details such as statutes of limitations on fair housing complaints; possible damages, and the different processes for lawsuits vs. formal administrative complaints.  

Sign up today to arm yourself with information and bone up on the enforcement process in order to protect your business interests.
