Employees of Educational Institutions Likely Protected From Sexual Orientation Discrimination under Title IX

With the #MeToo movement, there has been heightened awareness and actions taken against incidents of sexual harassment and sexual discrimination across many business sectors. There have been long been civil rights laws in place with the intent of protecting workers from sexual discrimination in the workplace and in educational institution. However, discrimination on the basis of an employee's sexual orientation is still a gray area where legislation is concerned. This is changing as recent federal appellate court decisions are reevaluating the extension of both Title VII and Title IX to workplace protections against sexual orientation discrimination. Most educational institutions, such as colleges, universities and many K-12 schools are required to abide by Title IX's sex discrimination protections.
