504.07000 – No reason or Inconsistent Reasons Given; Shifting Justifications
No inference of unlawful motivation may be drawn from notice that failed to provide any reasons for decision to terminate substitute teacher’s employment; evidence did not establish employer gave inconsistent justifications for its actions. Failure to include a reason for removal of employee did not support inference of unlawful motive in the absence of evidence that employer was required by law, policy, or past practice to give employee a specific reason.
