Your community has adopted policies and procedures to comply with federal fair housing law by prohibiting discrimination based upon race, color, religion, sex, familial status, national origin, and disability.

At a local apartment association meeting, the manager of a community in a neighboring city tells you about a new law banning discrimination based on sexual orientation and gender identity. You should implement the new rule immediately—with laws changing all the time, it’s important to take action quickly to avoid any risk of a discrimination complaint. True or false?
The law in your state bans discrimination based on lawful source of income. A prospect tells your leasing agent that she relies on retirement benefits for her rent, but it’s not enough to meet your community’s income requirements.
