Sexual Harassment Title IX Violations

Title IX Defense Lawyer in Minnesota

Colleges and institutions of higher learning are required by law to investigate and address Title IX violations, including allegations of sexual harassment. Given the current social climate, school administrators are more focused on properly handling investigations and implementing disciplinary action than ever before. Though their work is important, it can also pose risks to students who face false claims, overzealous or biased investigation, and serious penalties. As such, working with proven defense attorneys is critical to your future.

If you or someone you love has been accused of sexual harassment under Title IX, Caplan & Tamburino Law Firm, P.A. is available to help. Our award-winning criminal defense attorneys have extensive experience protecting the rights and futures of students, faculty, and others accused of serious Title IX violations, which are handled separately and apart from any criminal or civil proceeding.

Our experience in this field allows us to counsel clients on taking the right steps, preparing for interviews and disciplinary hearings, and working to secure the most favorable resolution possible, whether that means exoneration or reduced repercussions.

Sexual harassment & Title IX

Federal law prohibits sexual harassment in educational institutions that receive money from the government, including public colleges and other programs or private universities that receive federal funding. As a form of discrimination under Title IX, sexual harassment can occur in various ways, as well as between various parties. This includes:

  • Unwanted / unwelcome sexual conduct
  • Unwelcome sexual advances
  • Requests for sexual favors
  • Verbal, non-verbal, and / or physical conduct of a sexual nature
  • Sexual harassment between students
  • Sexual harassment between faculty and students

While sexual harassment does not include acts of sexual violence or assault, which are separate violations under Title IX, they are still serious matters that receive attention from school administrators and pose risks of serious consequences. This can include:

  • Probationary period imposed by the school
  • Mandatory completion of sexual education courses
  • Suspension
  • Expulsion

Because the penalties at sake can threaten one’s educational career, reputation, and future, it becomes important to exercise your right to legal representation when Title IX complaints have been filed. Our legal team knows how to guide clients step by step through these Title IX disciplinary proceedings, including:

  • Opening doors for communication with administrators during the investigation process
  • Preparation for meeting requirements, including documentation and interviews
  • Good faith negotiations
  • Advocacy at Title IX hearings and appeals
