The New Title IX - Unexpected Consequences for K-12 Labor & Employment
Original Date of Webinar - June 2, 2020 @ 1:00 PM - 2:00 PM CDT
Shelli Anderson and Jackie Gharapour Wernz, Partner at Franczek P.C. will present.
On May 6, 2020, the U.S. Department of Education issued the long-awaited final rules implementing Title IX, marking a major shift in the Department’s enforcement of the law with respect to complaints of sexual misconduct in schools. Although Title IX is often associated with sexual harassment against students, the new rules will have many effects on the processing of sexual misconduct complaints against school employees. The sweeping changes will also require training of employees, including administrators with Title IX responsibilities and rank-and-file staff, on the new regulations before they go into effect on August 14, 2020. In this webinar, participants will learn about the major changes from two Franczek P.C. attorneys with decades of experience in both HR and Title IX law. Attendees will understand what steps HR administrators should take to implement the regulatory changes and what unexpected consequences this major overhaul may bring.
