How does the EEOC prove someone is qualified for the job?



If we’re talking, let’s say, in the promotion discrimination context where you’ve applied for a promotion and didn’t get it, some of the things that EEOC will look at are: what were the job qualifications for the position you applied for, and did you meet those stated qualifications? The way that they will determine that is by looking at your past performance reviews, by interviewing witnesses and your colleagues who have worked with you, and looking to see for example did you get awarded performance bonuses? All of those factors will weigh into their decision of whether or not you were qualified for the job that you sought.
