Six Myths May Be to Blame for Delaying Fair Housing Compliance Training

Reactions: 
Many landlords, property managers, and other housing professionals who aren't knowledgeable about fair housing law likely have a reason for not getting the training they need. For example, they may believe there's just not much to know when it comes to fair housing compliance, or they might feel it will never be too late to take corrective action to make a discrimination problem go away.
