  1. Getting Fired: Re: Termination of Protected Class Employee in At-Will State

    Yes, he was the only male in the department. The employee is also claiming gender discrimination.
  2. Getting Fired: Re: Termination of Protected Class Employee in At-Will State

    But this could just as easily have happened if the employee had been white. I will concede the higher-up may have held a grudge, but on account of personal animosity not racism as I've never heard...
  3. Getting Fired: Re: Termination of Protected Class Employee in At-Will State

    The minority employee was dismissed not because of insubordination, but due to performance issues. This is why he was subject to the mid-year performance evaluation and later dismissed.

    If his...
  4. Getting Fired: Re: Termination of Protected Class Employee in At-Will State

    My instinct is that there would need to be proof of racial injustice in order for it to hold. Evidence would be lacking for the other side. There may be paperwork missing on our end internally, but...
  5. Getting Fired: Re: Termination of Protected Class Employee in At-Will State

    Thank you for your feedback. Again, I don't know if the higher-up is racist as I've never heard the higher-up say racist things. It was a personality conflict with one individual who happened to be...
  6. Getting Fired: Re: Termination of Protected Class Employee in At-Will State

    Not so sure. Never heard the higher-up say anything racist. It was a personality conflict with one individual who happened to be the only non-white in the department.
  7. Getting Fired: Re: Termination of Protected Class Employee in At-Will State

    Update: We talked to the higher-up to get the full story. Several months ago, the minority employee questioned a decision of the higher-up which the higher-up perceived as insubordination...
  8. Getting Fired: Re: Termination of Protected Class Employee in At-Will State

    OK, but how is this any different from a written warning given to a poorly performing employee to create a paper trail for subsequent dismissal?

  9. Getting Fired: Re: Termination of Protected Class Employee in At-Will State

    "In order to establish a prima facie case against his or her employer, a terminated person alleging discrimination must be able to show that:

    (1) he or she is a member of a protected class (i.e....
  10. Getting Fired: Re: Termination of Protected Class Employee in At-Will State

    Again, when the termination decision was made we looked into transferring him to a different department (although this can be used as evidence that his performance wasn't really that bad, and it was...
  11. Getting Fired: Re: Termination of Protected Class Employee in At-Will State

    We do have one piece of documentation and that is the mid-year evaluation. The mid-year evaluation contains documentation of performance lapses. However, the mid-year evaluation was drafted by the...
  12. Getting Fired: Re: Termination of Protected Class Employee in At-Will State

    The minority employee was discharged for performance issues, though we didn't indicate a reason in the termination letter.

    The only documentation we have of the minority employee's performance...
  13. Getting Fired: Re: Termination of Protected Class Employee in At-Will State

    Thanks for clarifying. I believe the minority employee questioned a decision of the higher-up which the higher-up perceived as a challenge to their authority. Seems that higher-up has singled him out...
  14. Getting Fired: Accused of Racial Discrimination After Firing an At-Will Employee

    My question involves labor and employment law for the state of: OR

    We are in an at-will state. We recently terminated an employee who falls in a protected class (racial minority).
