race and sex discrimination, MSPB

In Davis v. Department of the Interior114 M.S.P.R. 527 (2010), addressing generally the requirements of Title VII of the Civil Rights Act but specifically race and sex discrimination, it clarified that to meet the burden of proof that the agency’s action was discriminatory, the appellant need not introduce evidence of a similarly situated employee not in his or her protected group who was treated more favorably, but may rely on anyevidence giving rise to an inference that the unfavorable treatment at issue was due to illegal discrimination.
