Available Now: Title IX Toolkit for Higher Education Institutions
Sep 1, 2020
On May 6, 2020, the U.S. Department of Education released its final Rules governing how higher education institutions must address allegations of sexual harassment under Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972 (“Title IX”). The Rules, which went into effect on August 14, 2020, require significant revisions to institutions’ grievance procedures, as well as training for personnel who are involved in the Title IX investigation and grievance process. To assist your institution in implementing the new Rules, our attorneys have developed a Toolkit of required forms and notices for use by higher education institutions in processing Title IX sexual harassment reports and complaints.
The Title IX Toolkit is designed to accompany our recently developed Sex-Based Misconduct Policy and Procedures templates, which incorporate the new Title IX requirements, along with existing requirements under other related State and federal laws. If your institution has not yet purchased our Sex-Based Misconduct Policy and Procedures templates and you would like more information regarding these documents, please contact Emily Bothfeld at firstname.lastname@example.org or any Robbins Schwartz attorney.
