This CLE webinar will offer guidance to elder law and litigation attorneys on crucial issues and procedures involved in housing discrimination claims based on age or disability. The panel will discuss federal and state law protections, strategies in managing claims, and tactics for litigation. The panel will also discuss recent federal and state enforcement actions, cases, standards of review, and critical challenges in pursuing and defending against claims.

Description

Federal and state law prohibit housing discrimination based on specific criteria. For the elderly, age and disability based discrimination and harassment at senior living communities, nursing homes, and assisted living facilities have increased. Elder law and litigation attorneys must understand essential federal and state law protections and court standards of review in pursuing or defending against claims.

Generally, federal law prohibits housing discrimination based on a variety of criteria, with most states providing even more protection. Although assisted living and nursing home facilities don't have to accept all applicants, they must abide by civil rights laws that prohibit discriminating against protected classes. This also applies to facility staff in their duties and treatment of residents.

Listen as our panel discusses recent case law and enforcement actions, federal and state law protections, strategies in managing claims, and tactics for litigation.
