New eBook Makes Discrimination Training Even More Convenient and Affordable
Fair Housing Helper is pleased to announce the launch of the eBook version of Fair Housing Helper for Apartment Professionals, its popular compliance product aimed at helping landlords, property managers, leasing agents, and staff comply with the Fair Housing Act and related housing discrimination laws.
At $9.99, the new Kindle eBook edition is 50% less than the paperback, and thousands of dollars less than a Fair Housing lawsuit. The price is even lower when purchased with the paperback version.
Kirkus Reviews has called Fair Housing Helper for Apartment Professionals a “useful, easy-to-read guide for those who want to learn more about complying with U.S. fair housing law,” noting that the “book offers plenty of good advice in plain English” and the “quiz format makes learning the law fun and easy to digest.”
“Housing professionals across the country have shown great interest in Fair Housing Helper training in its opening months and have also earned their FairHousingHelper.com Gold Professional designation,” said Fair Housing Helper president and founder Ron Leshnower. “Fair housing compliance remains a top priority for smart landlords, property managers, leasing agents, and other staff who wish to avoid common fair housing traps that can put their business and reputation at risk.”
A quiz-based book published by Hillocrian Creative LLC in April 2013 to coincide with Fair Housing Month, Fair Housing Helper for Apartment Professionals shows readers how to protect their business, gain peace of mind, maintain good tenant relations, and avoid legal troubles by explaining a wide range of key compliance topics. For example, the book covers issues such as understanding how protected classes work, decorating a building for the holidays without showing religious preferences, avoiding certain phrases when advertising apartments, rejecting applicants who weren’t born in the United States, handling a tenant’s request to keep a cat for a disability despite a no-pets policy, and avoiding illegal steering and linguistic profiling.
Readers who complete the book’s quiz earn their designation as a FairHousingHelper.com Gold Professional, which entitles them to a badge and a personalized Certificate of Training to display their professional commitment to fair housing. In the unfortunate event of a lawsuit, a purchase of Fair Housing Helper for Apartment Professionals can also help bolster a reader’s credibility with a judge to avoid costly punitive damages.
“Fair Housing Helper for Apartment Professionals is a thorough, convenient, and even entertaining training program,” says Liz Bramlet of Liz Bramlet Consulting, LLC in Washington, D.C. “I highly recommend it to landlords, property managers, leasing agents, and other staff who need to identify”and handle”the many types of fair housing issues that can arise at a property any day.”
