It's Not Funny/It's Illegal. A Handbook of Laws Guaranteeing Equal Education and Employment Opportunities. Project SCOPE Book #3.
Riley, Susan, Comp.; Keroack, Elizabeth, Comp.
This handbook contains summaries, discussions, and the texts of some of the major federal legislation that guarantees students protection from sex discrimination in the areas of education and employment. Explained first are the following employment laws: Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1962; Executive Order 11246, as amended by Executive Order 11375; and the Equal Pay Act, as amended by the Education Amendments of 1972. Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972 and Title II of the Education Amendments of 1976 are also examined. Following a definition of sexual harassment, an explanation is provided of current legal issues surrounding it. Those constitutional rights most relevant to students are outlined. Described next are procedures for resolving both informal and formal grievances. A brief glossary of major terms pertaining to sexual discrimination is provided. Included in an appendix are the complete texts of all the regulations and laws referred to throughout the handbook. (Related handbooks of strategies for facilitating a peer support group for vocational students in nontraditional programs and activities for use by such support groups are available separately--see note.)
