Fair Housing for Maintenance

Maintenance personnel interact with residents more than anyone else on site. And if they aren't careful, their interaction with a current or potential resident could be misunderstood and result in a fair housing violation. This webinar takes a look at typical situations where the well-intentioned maintenance person could be at risk of violating fair housing laws, provides ways to handle these without discriminating, and discusses the importance of documentation. The webinar concludes with helpful tips on establishing fair housing policies and procedures for the maintenance team.
