Mike Skojec, Partner at Ballard Spahr LLP, will provide insight into the new NMHC and NAA white paper entitled “Criminal Conviction Screening Policies: Best Practices to Avoid Disparate Impact Liability,” This in-depth white paper provides a detailed analysis of HUD’s recent fair housing guidance on criminal screening.
