504.07000 – No reason or Inconsistent Reasons Given; Shifting Justifications
District’s explanation that applicant was rejected for re-employment because reference letter failed as to “quality/recency/appropriateness” was exaggerated, vague, and/or ambiguous. District has provided no explanation to employee as to how his reference letter failed as to quality, recency, and/or appropriateness. Board finds that the District’s inadequate explanation is further circumstantial evidence that the District acted with discriminatory animus.
