Take a Wider-Scope View of Civil Rights Protections in Housing

You already know all about the federal Fair Housing Act. But, as a housing industry sales agent, you must also be familiar and comply with state and local municipality fair housing laws. And these don’t always mirror federal rules.

Join realtor-turned-fair-housing-advocate Jo Becker to gain a comprehensive understanding of your responsibilities under federal, state, and local housing civil rights laws—as well as what enforcement actions you can expect for violations.

After attending this webinar, you will be armed with compliance knowledge about the seven federally-protected housing classes—as well as additional protected classes mandated by state and/or local jurisdictions. You’ll know the statute of limitations on housing discrimination complaints. And you’ll have a clear picture of the damages you can face for formal complaints filed with administrative agencies versus private litigation.

Don’t take local laws lightly. You’re liable for knowing and following all applicable fair housing laws. So arm yourself with the latest information and bone up on the enforcement process.
