ABOUT THE EVENT

The Fair Housing Act prohibits harassment, retaliation, and other types of discrimination in housing because of race, color, religion, sex, disability, familial status (households with children under age 18, including persons seeking custody or who are pregnant), or national origin.

A major concern for property managers and owners is their liability if they do not get involved in any issues of harassment.

A property owner or manager may be either directly or vicariously liable for sexual harassment as well as other issues between tenants. You must now get involved or you can be held liable for a fair housing violation. This will be discussed in detail.

Areas Covered

  • Sexual harassment
  • Quid pro quo
  • Hostile environment
  • Duties do property owners or property managers have to prevent or stop sexual harassment
  • HUD’s Equal Access Rule prohibits owners with Housing Assistance Payments (HAP) contracts from making housing unavailable because of an applicant’s or resident’s actual or perceived sexual orientation, gender identity, or marital status
  • Best practices as far as what property owners and managers should do to help prevent and address harassment.
  • Liability for the housing provider's own conduct  
  • The imposition of direct liability for the conduct of third parties.
  • Concerns addressed for housing providers under this new rule of facing liability for one tenant harassing another tenant.
  • What legal actions can be filed in cases of harassment

Most recently, he has been a consultant to the State of South Dakota. In this assignment he has developed a fair housing awareness program that is one of the first of its kind in the nation. It involves a three pronged approach to fair housing awareness. This approach makes use of an ombudsman concept and has proven to be very effective in dealing with discrimination and landlord/tenant issues.
