Training Overview

Does your dress code violate Title IX? Learn how to fix it before the new school year begins.

On June 14, a federal appeals court ruled that a North Carolina charter school violated students’ rights by requiring females to wear skirts, reversing a previous decision. This case set a precedent that Title IX discrimination extends to dress codes that cannot differentiate on the basis of sex.

Before the 2022-23 school year begins, you need to revise your dress code to ensure that it does not violate the federal law banning sex discrimination. Understanding and proactively addressing the legal issues will enable you to avoid lawsuits.
