The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD)has issued a final rule that creates liability for housing providers for occurrences of "quid pro quo harassment" or "hostile environment harassment." Persons with limited English proficiency (LEP)are also included in this rule. LEP includes a limited ability to read,write, speak, or understand English. The guidance reasons that LEP persons are covered by the Fair Housing Act (FHA) because of their close nexus with the protected class of national origin. The new rule, "Quid Pro Quo and Hostile Environment Harassment and Liability for Discriminatory Housing Practices Under the Fair Housing Act," takes effect on October 14, 2016.

The rule prohibits both quid pro quo and hostile environment harassment because of a resident’s protected class which, under the FHA includes race, color, religion, sex, familial status,national origin, or disability. The new guidance also confirms that discrimination against LEP persons may include intentional discrimination or disparate impact, the latter of which involves facially neutral policies that have a discriminatory effect. It imputes direct liability on housing providers more broadly for discriminatory practices.
Join us in this webinar with expert Paul Flogstad as he guides you through the changes in the Fair Housing Act issued in the new final rule which affects fair housing protections. He will explain how these updates should be implemented by owner and management agents in today’s fair housing environment in light of disparate impact rulings from HUD.

Key Features of the Conference:

·  Quid Pro Quo ("this for that") harassment explanation, its occurrence and how it can be addressed for Fair Housing compliance.

·  Hostile Environment harassment explanation, its occurrence and how it can be addressed for Fair Housing compliance. 

·  Judging whether harassing behavior is "sufficiently severe or pervasive,"from the perspective of a reasonable person in the aggrieved person's position.

·  Direct liability exposure for any type of discriminatory housing practice. The rule creates three categories of direct liability for housing providers:

·  Liability for the housing provider's own conduct  

·  Liability for failing to take prompt corrective action relating to the conduct of its employees or agents

·  Liability for failing to take prompt corrective action for the conduct of a third party(such as another resident).

·  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.

·  Prohibited or potentially discriminatory practices against persons with LEP examples and best practices to be in compliance towards Fair Housing. 

Who Should Attend:

·  Property Managers

·  Property Owners

·  Leasing Agents

·  Lenders

·  Realtors

·  Housing authority staff
