504.12000 – Employer Statements or Conduct; Threats
A manager’s mere dislike of a charging party does not, in and of itself, demonstrate nexus. From the school principal’s e-mail stating he was “taking out a hit on” charging party, it is apparent that the school principal harbored a bias against charging party, but not because of charging party’s protected activity. The bias instead stemmed from the principal’s belief that he was “bad for kids.” Such bias does not violate EERA.
