Schools and universities have experienced an increased number of discrimination complaints filed by both students and employees. This trend has led to new administrative burdens on schools, both in appropriately responding to complaints, as well as managing subsequent litigation or governmental oversight that may come as a result of a school’s response. Guidance and decisions produced by the United States Department of Education, in addition to emerging caselaw, illustrate the necessity of promptly and equitably addressing complaints of discrimination in a manner that ensures fairness to all parties.
