What do I have to show to prove a prima facie case of employment discrimination?

Yes, in most cases, you have a very low bar to make a claim for discrimination. You just have to demonstrate that you’re in a protected class such as you were terminated or suffered some adverse job action by virtue of being a female or virtue of your national origin. And once you do that to show you’re in a protected class, and some negative job action occurred, then you’ve made your prime aphasia case. It’s a really low bar, but it sets the stage for the lawsuit. So you have to be in that protected category and you have to show that you suffered some negative job action that’s related to that protected category.
