504.04000 – Timing of Action
Timing of action failed to provide nexus where employee gave testimony at a hearing against the county in March of 1988, where the result of the hearing was not adverse to the county and where a request for a second consecutive year leave of absence was requested subsequent to giving the testimony and was initially responded to favorably by the county but then for business reasons was denied. No adverse action was taken until the Fall of 1988.
