The bottom line is that you never know which employee is going to sue you over a lost promotion, poor evaluation or other perceived slight.
That’s why you should always keep careful track of all work deficiencies and document what role they played in every employment decision. Remember, the best defense is a good offense. Good records win lawsuits.
Recent case: Kan Plasai, who is a Thai national, worked as a computer specialist for the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA). She said she had been denied a promotion because of her national origin or race.
But the FAA said the real reason was because she didn’t get along with others and worked overtime without approval. Because she could not rebut those reasons, the 5th Circuit Court of Appeals agreed with the trial court that she had no case. (Plasai v. Peters, No. 07-11282, 5th Cir., 2008)
