St. Louis Title IX Law Practice
Title IX prohibits discrimination on the basis of sex at educational institutions that receive federal funds, which includes all public schools and some private schools and universities. Specifically, Title IX protects victims of on-campus gender discrimination, sexual harassment, and sexual assault. Title IX claims can also arise if the discrimination, harassment or assault occurred off campus if there is a sufficient connection to an educational program or activity. These protections apply to all students and employees whether they are male, female, or gender-nonconforming.
Under Title IX, schools have a legal duty to proactively prevent illegal gender-based conduct. Schools must also implement reporting procedures for gender-based harassment, discrimination, and violence and provide accommodations to victims of discrimination. Title IX also prohibits schools from retaliating against a student for exercising their rights protected by Title IX.
