504.04000 – Timing of Action

Timing of employer’s investigation was suspicious where managers knew of employee’s alleged wrongdoing and did not take any immediate action to investigate the matter. Managers did not mention employee’s alleged misconduct to department chief until nearly three months later, around the same time employee became engaged in a dispute about light duty with the department. (Adopting proposed decision at p. 18.)
