2024 Outlook: Navigating Fair Housing Compliance Amidst Rapid Changes and New Challenges

During the last year (2023) of increased funding for fair housing advocacy groups, increased testing, large penalty awards, court decisions favouring tenants and new legislation affecting fair housing compliance, it was hard for some of us to pause and take stock of the changes and how they inform our operations.

Depending on what market you operate in, your compliance efforts may be impacted by the tens of millions of dollars going to fair housing advocacy groups for testing and “education”, additional protected classes, fair chance legislation and a general feeling of being under attack!

Join us for this information-packed session with Fair Housing expert speaker Doug Chasick to review some outrageous fair housing violations (and penalties) and wade into some of the new laws about falsifying assistive animals’ status and not being able to check criminal backgrounds.

This session by Doug will also look at what 2024 might bring for fair housing compliance changes.

Session Highlights:

  • Current trends in Assistance Animal verification management
  • Fair Housing parking vs ADA parking
  • Fair chance housing laws
  • Dissecting the Disparate Impact Theory
  • What Fair Housing violations cost in 2023 – and the increase in penalties for 2024
  • What’s on the horizon for 2024

Learning Objectives:

  • Ensure awareness of the basic requirements of Fair Housing.
  • Review the current best practices for not running afoul of Disparate Impact
  • Explore differences between Fair Housing and ADA parking spaces and crafting enforceable policies for managing each.
  • Analyze awards and penalties paid as a result of fair housing violations and evaluate options for protecting against these types of violations.
