TITLE IX and Harassment

Title IX and Harassment

TITLE IX: Policy and Protocol for Investigating Sexual Harassment/Retaliation

New Title IX regulations, issued by The Secretary of Education and take effect on August 14, 2020, amends the regulations implementing Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972 (Title IX). The final regulations specify how recipients of Federal financial assistance covered by Title IX, including elementary and secondary schools, must respond to allegations of sexual harassment consistent with Title IX’s prohibition against sex discrimination. The revised regulations are intended to effectuate Title IX’s prohibition against sex discrimination by requiring recipients to address sexual harassment as a form of sex discrimination in education programs or activities.
