NMHC/NAA Fair Housing: Criminal Screening Policies Webinar


June 23, 2016
2:00 PM - 3:00 PM EDT
Online Webinar

NMHC and NAA will host a webinar on our new white paper entitled, “Criminal Conviction Screening Policies: Best Practices to Avoid Disparate Impact Liability,” on Thursday, June 23 from 2 to 3 p.m. EDT. This in-depth white paper provides a detailed analysis of HUD’s recent fair housing guidance on criminal screening. HUD’s new policy seeks to extend protections for individuals with criminal histories by ending blanket exclusions of prospective residents based on criminal history in favor of a more individualized approach that is more narrowly tailored to achieve property safety and security goals. 


Mike Skojec, Partner at Ballard Spahr LLP, will provide insight into the white paper, including overall best practices and screening policies, as well as additional context to the application of disparate impact theory under the Fair Housing Act.
