In 2015, the U.S. Supreme Court opened the gates for Fair Housing disparate impact cases. Since then, landlords have seen a flood of these unintentional discrimination claims. From the HUD Guidance on the use of arrest and conviction records to occupancy standards, landlords have been inundated with news about disparate impact claims and the fear their policies are next to be challenged.
In this session, we will discuss the latest disparate impact cases as well as those that may be on the horizon. We will also discuss how disparate impact cases are brought in an effort to understand the best steps to avoiding one. Join us for this in-depth discussion of disparate impact under fair housing laws.
