Part-timers enjoy the same protection from age bias as full-timers do.

Recent case: Patricia, a part-time college instructor over age 40, taught two courses per semester. After enrollment fell, one of her courses was canceled. She sued for age bias, citing as comparators several younger instructors whose schedules hadn’t been cut.

But those younger instructors taught substantially different courses that apparently were more in demand. Patricia thus couldn’t show that they were similarly situated. She lost her case. (Coffman v. Alvin Community College, No. G-11-361, SD TX, 2015)
