503.07000 – Discharge; Layoffs; Constructive Discharge; Rejection During Probation
Employee was laid off when his position was eliminated as part of university-wide staff reductions. University did not lay off employee in retaliation for union activities. While decision maker had knowledge of employee’s union activities, union animus held by employee’s supervisors is not imputed to decision maker, and layoff decision was not so economically indefensible that it must have been the product of unlawful motivation.
