1100.01000 – In General/Prima Facie Case
A charge alleging reprisal which does not state who was the subject of reprisal, the nature of the protected activity, or a nexus indicating that the adverse action was taken because of the individuals protected activity is inadequate to state a prima facie case; p. 2, dismissal letter. In the face of unambiguous contractual language, a vague and conclusory allegation about the "intention of the parties" unsupported by clear factual allegations is inadequate to state a prima facie case.
