As courts have repeatedly observed in employment cases, direct evidence of unlawful motive is rare. Instead, employees typically rely on circumstantial evidence. 

In this program, we will explore how circumstantial evidence is used — and countered — in a typical discrimination case. Topics will include:

  • Comparator evidence
  • Statistical evidence
  • Discrediting evidence
  • Implicit bias evidence
  • Same-actor inference
