All schools receiving federal funds must comply with Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972 (Title IX), including the requirement to designate at least one employee to carry out the responsibilities under Title IX. Any employee assigned with these responsibilities quickly finds out that this is no small undertaking. The Title IX Coordinator must not only have an in-depth knowledge of Title IX and other state and federal non-discrimination laws, but also must implement policies and procedures and handle any investigations on complaints related to sexual harassment. With the increased attention to these issues, including changes within the Department of Education, it is extremely important for Title IX Coordinators to understand their obligations related to handling complaints concerning sexual harassment. Please join Richard Verstegen for this important discussion regarding addressing complaints related to student sexual harassment under Title IX to ensure that schools avoid liability.


Just a sampling of what this webinar will cover:

  • Learn about the proposed Title IX regulations, released by the Department of Education on November 16, 2018.
  • Review best practices related to notifying students of Title IX procedures and establishing a clear grievance procedure for students to bring complaints to the attention of the school
  • Understand how to effectively address informal or formal complaints from students and addressing such complaints under any harassment policy or procedure
  • Discuss issues related to implementing remedial measures during the investigation, contacting law enforcement to report potential criminal behavior, and selecting an investigator at the school
  • Analyze various case scenarios involving sexual harassment and sexual assault between students to enhance your understanding of these concepts
