Preventing and Dealing with Sexual Harassment of Residents
In this month’s feature, we gave you seven rules for preventing and dealing with sexual harassment of residents. If you or a member of your staff sexually harasses someone, you’re discriminating against that person on the basis of sex and can be liable under fair housing law. Residents can claim that you sexually harassed them by creating a “hostile” or “offensive” housing environment or by saying they can’t live at your site unless they submit to sexual advances.
