Implicit Bias Discrimination

How can you be held liable in a discrimination lawsuit if you didn’t intend to do it? Did you know that unintentional discrimination can get you sued everywhere throughout the United States? The Fair Housing Act, the New York State Human Rights Law, and the New York City Human Rights Law each support a lawsuit for unintentional conduct, called a disparate impact lawsuit. Each also provides for failure-to-accommodate lawsuits where intent is irrelevant to a claim. Finally, each provides that intentional discrimination, called a disparate treatment lawsuit, can be proven through circumstantial evidence because mind reading isn’t an acceptable tool of judicial inquiry. If you don’t want your subconscious to ruin your life, you need to take this course now.  Implicit Bias is a real estate continuing education course that satisfies 2 credits of the total 22.5 credits required by the NY Department of State for license renewal. This course also satisfies 2 of the 3 hours of instruction pertaining to Fair Housing and Discrimination required by the Department of State, New York.
