504.00000 – EMPLOYER DISCRIMINATION; EVIDENCE OF UNLAWFUL MOTIVATION; NEXUS
504.08000 – Cursory Investigation

Evidence failed to establish cursory investigation to support termination based on failure to report for work as directed absent a qualifying medical excuse, where there was little in dispute that would have required investigation. Employee was a victim of his own misunderstanding about his right to be on leave without a medical release. Even this highly charitable view does not reflect animus toward employee’s protected activity.
