With College Athletes on Cusp of Revenue-Sharing, There are Title IX Questions That Must be Answered

TFNLG civil rights attorney, Iliana Konidaris, said Title IX rules will apply if the schools are tasked with directing payments to athletes. Konidaris said it will be critical for the U.S. Department of Education’s Office for Civil Rights to provide guidance on how revenue sharing and name, image and likeness compensation should be paid to keep schools in Title IX compliance. “If the universities are going to end up exerting control over the revenue sharing,” Konidaris said, “you’re going to need to address pay equity very head-on.”
