NEWS FLASH!!! - The Fair Housing Act Prohibits Discrimination Against People with Disabilities (Rather than the Americans with Disabilities Act)

Contrary to popular belief, even among lawyers, the Americans with Disabilities Act does not cover housing (well, maybe just a teeny bit, but not enough to matter much). Actually, the federal Fair Housing Act (FHA) is the primary law that prohibits discrimination against people with disabilities in housing. This seminar will cover the various ways that the FHA protects people with disabilities. Topics will include: (a) reasonable accommodations; (b) reasonable modifications; (c) support animals; (d) new construction; and (e) the defenses available to housing providers.

The training will rely heavily on hypothetical scenarios and audience participation, so please be prepared to speak your mind.

Instructors listed below.
