Our Attorneys Know Title IX and Indiana Schools

Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972 prohibits discrimination at any federally funded educational institution. The legislation protects both students and employees at schools and universities. Claims may be based on conduct by a student, an employee or educator at the school, or the institution itself. Title IX claims may arise in the following circumstances, among others:

  • Employment discrimination
  • Gender-based discrimination in a school office, student athletic program, school activity, or classroom
  • Sexual harassment or sexual assault by a school employee or student against another employee or student
  • Sexual misconduct or dating violence
  • Creation or toleration of a hostile work environment based on gender-based discrimination or harassment
  • Retaliation for reporting or making a Title IX complaint

Indiana holds a special place in the history of this civil rights law as formerSenator Birch Bayh originally introduced the Title IX legislation nearly 50 years ago. Continuing the connection with this law, Keffer Hirschauer attorneys keep up to date with the Title IX policies and procedures at Indiana schools and universities.

The Title IX Process Requires Quick, Thorough Action

Title IX processes are not as robust as those in criminal or civil rights cases. People facing a Title IX claim have fewer protections and less access to information than those charged with crimes. And Title IX matters move rapidly. Educational institutions generally complete their proceedings in 60 days, and potential consequences can be severe.

Title IX sanctions for students include, but are not limited to:

  • Suspension
  • Expulsion
  • Prohibition from participation in certain programs or activities
  • Denial of diploma

Consequences of Title IX violations for employees are equally harsh and include disciplinary actions such as suspension, loss of tenure, and even dismissal.

Violations may also negatively impact future educational or employment opportunities in addition to tarnishing an accused’s reputation. And the information collected in Title IX proceedings may form the basis of later criminal charges or civil action for money damages.
