504.08000 – Cursory Investigation
Employer’s failure to interview an employee in connection with a disciplinary matter evidences unlawful motive only when the employer routinely interviews employees under such circumstances. No evidence that employer regularly interviewed probationary employees before releasing them. No evidence that employer had a practice of interviewing individuals who complained about a driver’s performance when a videotape of the incident was available. Therefore, failure to interview employees about incidents did not support inference of unlawful motive.
