400.01000 – In General; Standards
School district’s directive to teacher prohibiting teacher from discussing a pending investigation with any staff member constitutes interference because it can reasonably be construed as prohibiting protected activity, such as teacher’s right to speak to her coworkers about her working conditions. Directive causes at least slight harm to teacher’s protected rights under EERA and school district did not establish any operational necessity for its directive, and accordingly teacher established a prima facie case for interference.
