7:25-8:30 Working with Disabled Residents and Defending Discrimination Claims Sean T. O’Leary, Esq. www.olearylaw.com
For many landlords the ins and outs of the Fair Housing Act are a mine field. One challenge is who is considered disabled and another is what are your obligations under the law. Attorney Sean O’Leary has represented clients before the Human Rights Commission – and in court – and he will take us through what you have to do to be sure you’re not violating this law.
O’Leary will be looking at some of the finer points such as what is a disability and what are the exceptions. Does it include folks with depression, PTSD, or drug users? What about sex offenders or juveniles? What exactly are reasonable accommodations?
And what if you get it wrong? Or if someone accuses you of getting it wrong, how do you best defend yourself?
I hope you can join us for this session when we will have the good fortune to hear from an attorney that focuses in this area of the law.
We are a networking and educational group and we are not looking to sell you anything. You don’t have to make a reservation and whatever your level of experience you are welcome to attend.
