New Mexico Preventing Sexual Harassment: Digital Training for Maintaining a Safe Environment for Students & Staff
The U.S. Department of Education Office for Civil Rights (OCR) recently released new regulations that govern educational institutions’ response to allegations of sexual harassment under Title IX. The rules, which become effective August 14, 2020, significantly modify schools' obligations to address and respond to allegations of sexual harassment. One of the most significant changes is the obligation of all employees to report suspected sexual harassment. With that in mind, our attorneys have created a digital resource designed to train all of your employees so that they can identify and report incidents of sexual harassment. This training covers employee-employee, employee-student, and student-student sexual harassment and is intended to be completed annually by all employees.
