About The Event
Although we may require individuals to undergo a criminal background check as part of the application process, recent federal fair housing guidance states that it may be illegal for us to refuse to rent to someone because of their criminal background without considering the nature and severity of the crimes, how old the record is, and any rehabilitative efforts since the conviction. It is critical we understand how the theory of Disparate Impact affects our policies and modify our operations to comply.
This session will provide an overview as well as make specific suggestions for compliance, based upon industry best practices.
- Recent court decisions
- What are the Fair Housing Act requirements?
- Creating effective policies and workflow
- Suggested form language
- Resolution of request
- Ensure awareness of current Fair Housing guidance and court cases regarding disparate impact and criminal background checks, and suggested strategies for effective compliance.
- Understand and apply the definition and concept of “the interactive process” when evaluating applications.
- Create policies, forms and workflows that support compliance.
- And much more.
Additional Handout: We will provide a PDF workbook with content and links to useful resources including access to HUD/DOJ guidance memos.
