505.12000 – Lack of Knowledge of Protected Activity
Supervisor who initiated termination by informing personnel officer of employee's absence, did not know of employee's protected activity. However, the personnel officer who signed and issued the termination notice knew of the protected activity. As the personnel officer was a participant in the decision to issue the disciplinary action, the "knowledge" element is established.
