The Walking Papers is a podcast by Van Kampen Law that aims to give listeners, who may be on the wrong side of a situation at work, practical advice on how to turn the tables on their employers.
On this episode entitled “You Want Me on That Wall, You Need Me on That Wall: Proving Your Discrimination Case Without Colonel Jessup Admitting He Ordered the Code Red," attorney Josh Van Kampen details how you can prove a discrimination case without a big, smoking gun-style admission from your employer.
Josh kicks off the episode discussing the difficulty involved in proving intent and what is going through the employer’s mind when an employee is being terminated. (2:12) Josh goes on to discuss the different types of evidence that can be presented in employment cases. (5:51)
In employment cases, the burden shifts from employees to employers as the case progresses. Josh describes this burden-shifting and what must be proven in each phase of the case. (7:50) Because employers are known to terminate employees for pretextual or false reasons, Josh discusses the steps employment attorneys take to undermine and poke holes in the employer’s story. (11:43) Josh then talks about the important information he wants to know when someone comes into his office and asks, “do I have a case.” (15:04)
This episode of the Walking Papers Podcast concludes with Josh giving listeners some practical tips on what they can do, and not do, either before they get fired or immediately after being fired. (16:52)
