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
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
