As long as loans are being made, fair lending issues are here to stay. Although overt discrimination is infrequent, disparate treatment or disparate impact can occur inadvertently. Examiners expect financial institutions to conduct comparative file reviews to identify potential fair lending issues – which you want to find well before an examiner does!

Awareness, monitoring, and periodic comparative file review can lessen the likelihood of adverse issues arising. This informative webinar will cover the steps of a comparative file review and provide worksheets and a report format to make it easier.
