Thank you for the opportunity to help you with your question!

Disparate Treatment

"Disparate Treatment Title VII prohibits employers from treating applicants or employees differently because of their membership in a protected class. The central issue is whether the employer's actions were motivated by discriminatory intent, which may be proved by either direct or circumstantial evidence."
