In five of the cases heard by the United States Supreme Court during its 1998 and its 1999 term, decisions addressing central issues in developing sexual harassment law involving both employees and students were issued.
These cases were brought under Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, which protects employees in both public and private institutions and businesses from discrimination based on their sex.
by students were brought under Title IX of the Education Amendments
of 1972, which protects students from sex discrimination, including
sexual assault and sexual harassment in all aspects of education (including
recruitment, admissions, curricular and extracurricular opportunities,
financial aid, rules of conduct, counseling, testing, fees, services
and benefits, and other educational activities and opportunities).
