Newly released Title IX regulations
On May 6, 2020, the Department of Education published the final version of the Title IX regulations.
The final regulations specify how schools, colleges, and other Federally funded institutions must respond going forward to allegations of sexual harassment. These regulations require sexual harassment in education programs or activities to be addressed as a form of sex discrimination. The schools must respond supportively and promptly to anyone claiming to be sexually harassed, resolve allegations of sexual harassment promptly and accurately with due process protections to alleged sexual harrassment victims and accused perpetrators.
The final regulations also modify and clarify Title IX regulatory requirements regarding
- disciplinary action the Department may impose on Title IX violators,
- the intersection between Constitutional protections, Title IX, and other laws,
- the designation of a Title IX Coordinator by each school to address sex discrimination, which includes sexual harassment,
- distribution of a non-discrimination policy and contact information for the Title IX Coordinator,
- adoption of a specified grievance procedures and process,
- how a school may claim a religious exemption,
- the prohibition of punishment for exercising rights under Title IX.
These Title IX regulations become effective August 14, 2020.
