Robinson+Cole’s Education Industry Team chair, Kate Dion, and Team member, Natale DiNatale, will present the 50-minute workshop program “Are College Athletes Students or Employees? A Review of the Current Legal Landscape Surrounding the Student - Athlete Debate” as part of the Connecticut Conference of Independent Colleges’ (CCIC) 2022 Annual Member Forum “Partnering for Progress,” on November 21, 2022. The U.S. Department of Education recently referred a discrimination complaint filed by college athletes against NCAA Division I schools to the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission because the complaint arises in the context of employment. The virtual session will review this development, including the current legal landscape on the student - athlete debate and the relevant implications for colleges and universities.
