504.04000 – Timing of Action
Charging party failed to state a prima facie case of a discrimination violation based on employer's refusal to hire him into a new position because charge only contained allegation of a single indicator of unlawful motive [proximity in time]; a single factor does not, without more, demonstrate the necessary connection or "nexus" between the adverse action and the protected conduct.
