Title IX is a law originally created to provide female collegiate athletes from discrimination in sports. While it still applies in those circumstances, these days it is more likely to be invoked in sexual harassment cases. This can include teacher on student, student on student, or school employee to school employee sexual harassment. Title IX imposes strict procedural requirements on the educational institution which, if not strictly followed, can result in liability for the school and grave consequences for the individuals involved.
