Anna King HA 387 8.30.2007 Class Notes: 8.30.2007 ****Review*****: 1. Plaintiff has burden of proving first that plaintiff is a member of a protected class. This is most times, not difficult whereas disabilities are. 2. Plaintiff has to prove that they are minimally qualified and applied for the job 3. You must have suffered the adverse employment action 4. The job must have remained open or it went to someone outside the class 5. After all of this, defendant must produce a non-discriminatory case 6. Then plaintiff must prove it was pretext and discrimination o If plaintiff just proves pretext, the jury may infer discrimination, but they don’t have to Hopkins vs. Price Waterhouse People do not like this woman who is up for partnership, single mother. She is very difficult to work with. From a job qualification stand point, she is suited for partner, but they tell her that people don’t like her so they suggest that she act “more feminine.” Gets denied as partner even after she changes her looks, so she sues. So this is sex discrimination, but she really is offensive and doesn’t work well with others.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
