HUD issues guidance on Fair Housing Act and sexual harrasmentMortgagePress.comHUD, Fair Housing Act, sexual harrasment, discrimination, property owners, property managers The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development has issued guidance under the Fair Housing Act clarifying what constitutes sexual harassment and the legal remedies available to victims of sexual harassment in housing. HUD's guidance makes clear that as long as an individual demonstrates that the harassment was unwelcome, he or she may file a claim regardless of whether they experienced the loss of a housing opportunity or tangible economic loss. HUD's guidance also explains that property owners and property managers have a duty to prevent or stop sexual harassment committed by employees, agents, or contractors and that they may be liable for acts committed by such persons. For example, if an apartment manager authorizes a maintenance worker to enter a tenant's home to make a repair, and the maintenance worker sexually harasses the tenant, the management company may be held vicariously liable for the maintenance worker's actions. "Individuals have the right to housing without being subjected to sexual harassment," said Kim Kendrick, HUD Assistant Secretary for Fair Housing and Equal Opportunity. "This guidance lets individuals know that they do not have to tolerate sexual harassment in housing and advises landlords of the consequences of failing to abide by the law." The guidance is available at www.hud.gov/fairhousing. For more information, visit www.hud.gov.
