Mayes v. WinCo Holdings, Inc., 14-35396

In an employment action alleging gender discrimination claims under Title VII and the Idaho Human Rights Act, a claim under the Consolidated Omnibus Budget Reconciliation Act, and wage claims under the Fair Labor Standards Act and the Idaho Wage Claim Act, the district court's grant of summary judgment to employer-defendant is reversed where: 1) as to the gender discrimination claims, plaintiff presented sufficient evidence that defendant's proffered reasons for terminating her were pretextual because she offered ample direct evidence of discriminatory animus, as well as specific and substantial indirect evidence challenging the credibility of defendant's motives; 2) as to the COBRA claim, there was a genuine dispute of fact regarding the true reason for the plaintiff's termination; and 3) summary judgment was improper on the state and federal wage claims.
