504.04000 – Timing of Action
Timing of dismissal of employee two days after participating in negotiations, without more, did not establish unlawful motive, where employer took action based upon employee’s failure to submit request for union business leave 24 hours in advance, as required by contract and parties’ past practices. Discipline of employee on the same day he participated in contract negotiations, coupled with disparate treatment and employer’s deviation from past practices concerning notice requirement for union leave, established unlawful motivation.
