Same title doesn’t make employees equally qualified

Some employees believe they should be considered for a promotion just because they have the same job title as another employee being considered. But that’s not the case if the employees have different experience levels.

For example, recent retirees may take entry-level jobs for which they are “overqualified.” When a promotion opportunity opens, their employer may be eager to use their talents more fully.

Recent case: Housing code inspector Hans Julceus, who is black, was passed over for a promotion in favor of a white inspector. He sued, alleging race discrimination.

But his employer showed that the white inspector had years of experience at other jobs and in management, making him the superior candidate by far. The court tossed out Julceus’ case. (Julceus v. City of North Miami, No. 08-23348, SD FL, 2009)
