Chapters II and III focus on Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 and the Equal Pay Act of 1963. Information is presented on who is regulated by each act, what is prohibited, exceptions to coverage, and sources of additional information. Chapter IV discusses Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972. Topics discussed include who is regulated, exemptions to coverage under the regulations, what is mandated, general requirements, treatment of students, and sources of additional information. (DB)
