If I prove that the employer’s stated reason is false or a pretext will I win my case?Return to FAQ Videos
Disproving the employer-stated reason for why they treated you differently is a great way to get a good result in an employment discrimination case and usually results in a win or damages to be awarded. There are a number of different ways you can do this. One is by showing that other similar-situated employees were treated better than you. Another way is by showing comments. Usually what we say is that, ‘Words are the window to the mind.’ If there are examples of an employer using comments that are adversarial to a certain group of individuals, that’s great evidence of animosity, and that’s a great way to prove pretext.
