The Process of Filing a Title IX Complaint
The first thing you must do if you feel your educational institution has treated you unfairly for reasons related to your gender is connect with an attorney who handles Title IX claims.
On the advice of counsel, you can take one or two routes to filing your complaint:
- Filing a complaint with the Office for Civil Rights (OCR): Within 180 days of experiencing discrimination by your university or college, you can file a claim with the OCR, which will then be thoroughly investigated. During this process, you will be able to work with the school to voluntarily come to a solution, if possible. If this does not work, the Department of Justice may decide to prosecute your claim.
- File a civil Title IX lawsuit: This is a much more independent means of resolving your conflict (though it can last longer and is only available to students who have experienced direct sexual harassment from the school), and it allows you to recover compensation.
