A PRIMA FACIE CASE OF DISCRIMINATION EXISTS IF EMPLOYEE CAN SHOW THAT THEY: are a member of a protected class; qualified to perform job & meeting employers expectations; subjected to an adverse employment action; and similarly situated employees of another class were treated more favorably.

If the defendant has provided a legitimate reason, the burden shifts back to the plaintiff to show that the defendants proffered reason is merely pretextual.
