How Might Federal Policy Impact Independent Schools in 2019?

By Net Assets posted 01-18-2019 10:31 AM


(from NAIS) What regulations, legislation or rulings coming out of Washington this year might impact independent schools? These five items stand out to NAIS's legal counsel and staff attorney:

  • The U.S. Department of Education’s proposed rule revamping obligations regarding sexual harassment and assault under Title IX is accepting comments until January 28, 2019. 
  • The U.S. Department of Labor will release a new proposed rule regarding overtime pay in March. 
  • The Department of Homeland Security plans to release a rule in September that sets a strict time limit for all F-1 student visas and potentially causes some restrictions for students.
  • The IRS may put forward additional guidance on UBIT siloing and transit/parking UBIT compliance under the tax reform act, and efforts on Capitol Hill to repeal the transit/parking tax continue. 
  • The U.S. Supreme Court is deciding if it will hear one of several pending cases questioning whether Title VII’s prohibition on sex discrimination in employment covers LGBTQ employees.
