Free CLE-Source of Income Discrimination: Enforcing New York State’s New Housing Discrimination Law

  • Employment

This free CLE program is co-sponsored by CUNY School of Law and the Fair Housing Justice Center.

Date: June 19: 2:00pm-4:30
CLE: 2.5 professional practice credits

Description: In April, the State of New York passed the Lawful Source of Income Anti-Discrimination Act of 2019, adding source of income as a protected characteristic under the State Human Rights Law. Across the State, households with income from sources other than employment and households seeking to pay all or part of their rent with public subsidies are now protected from illegal housing discrimination. This seminar will feature experienced civil rights attorneys who, for the past 10 years, have been enforcing the source of income discrimination law in New York City. The seminar will highlight some of the unique issues that arise in source of income cases that do not routinely occur in other fair housing cases.

The event will be held at CUNY School of Law, 2 Court Square, Long Island City, NY 11101.
