      Consistent with our precedent, a plaintiff alleging retaliation has a lesser causal burden at the prima facie stage. See e.g., Doe v. C.A.R.S. Prot. Plus, Inc., 527 F.3d 358, 365 (3d Cir. 2008) (“[T]he prima facie requirement for making a Title VII claim ‘is not onerous’ and poses ‘a burden easily met.’” (quoting Texas Dep’t of Cmty. Affairs v.

    1. Use caution and listen Take a cautious approach to everything that you and your employer say and do about the termination. Anything your employer puts in writing about your termination and the documents you sign before leaving can have important implications for your future.

  • Court finds employer’s business judgment is BS

A recent example comes from a New York federal court in Roa v. Staples, Inc., August 9, 2017, Briccetti, V. The issue in Roa was whether the employer fired the plaintiff because of her disability, or whether ...

  • Donald Trump, the FBI and pretext

    Donald Trump claims he fired FBI Director Comey because he mishandled the investigation of Secretary Clinton’s emails. Yet that investigation took place and was over before Trump was elected President. To the extent Comey mishandled anything, Trump clearly knew about it on the first day he took office.
