Bad behavior by AvalonBay doesn't end with construction
Posted by on

AvalonBay, which has been the target of numerous protests by the Carpenters Union in New England for dangerous working conditions and mistreatment of workers during the construction of large, multi-unit housing developments, has been forced to reach a settlement with the Massachusetts Attorney General's Office to resolve a housing discrimination lawsuit.

The company has agreed to make payments to the victim and "institute a broad range of preventive measures to ensure future compliance with the law" according to a press release from the AGs office. The suit was filed after AvalonBay attempted to evict a woman and her two small children, ages two and four, from their AvalonBay apartment in Woburn based on "unreasonable and unsubstantiated" noise complaints by a neighbor, which AvalonBay never investigated.
