Education Law & Internal Investigations
Both Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 and Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972 provide protection against discrimination. Title VII is a federal law that prohibits discrimination in employment based on sex, as well as race, color, national origin and religion. Title IX is a federal law that prohibits sex discrimination in education, covering all staff and students in any educational institution or program that receives federal funds.
