How to Reduce the Risk of Sexual Harassment Claims

Thursday, February 1, 2018 | 3:00 p.m. ET, 2:00 p.m. CT

During the past year, many high-profile politicians, entertainers, and media figures have been fired or resigned for sexual harassment. And the Justice Department has recently announced a new initiative to combat sexual harassment in housing. In light of this intense scrutiny, how can multifamily property owners and managers reduce the risk of sexual harassment claims being filed against them?
 
Sexual harassment—that is, unwelcome sexual conduct—is a form of discrimination based on sex. In this one-hour webinar, speaker Jessica Weisman will explain:
 

  • What constitutes illegal sexual harassment under the Fair Housing Act and HUD rules
  • Who can file a sexual harassment claim
  • When owners can be liable for the sexual harassment committed by their managers, employees, and contractors
  • How to make sure community policies and procedures comply with the Violence Against Women Act
This presentation is geared to:
  • Owners of multifamily housing properties
  • Managers of multifamily housing properties
  • Leasing agents
  • Attorneys and other rental property advisors
