Design Training to Ensure the Investigation Process is Compliant from Initial Report to Final Resolution
Although the proposed changes to Title IX have caused confusion, one thing is clear: institutions must conduct investigation processes that are compliant. Title IX sexual misconduct cases remain exceedingly complex, and investigators are called upon to provide a fair and unbiased investigative process to protect the rights and privacy of all parties.
Have your investigators been trained properly?
Are they confidently distinguishing the procedural differences between a Title IX and Non-Title IX case?
Our expert presenter shares comprehensive guidance on the most recent changes and existing expectations for Title IX investigations. Gain specific strategies, understanding and awareness of the training you should be doing, as well as documentation and reporting expectations required in Title IX and sexual misconduct investigations. Ensure your process is equitable, impartial, and thorough by emphasizing the importance of comprehensive training and practice from start to finish.
You’ll be able to craft compliant training for your investigators to ensure that your process from investigation to hearing is compliant with Title IX regulations.
This online training will offer crucial, actionable takeaways that will help you:
