What is a prima facie case of negligence?
Just so, what is the meaning of a prima facie case?
Overview. Prima facie may be used as an adjective meaning "sufficient to establish a fact or raise a presumption unless disproved or rebutted." An example of this would be to use the term "prima facie evidence." A prima facie case is the establishment of a legally required rebuttable presumption.
One may also ask, what is an example of prima facie? An example of prima facie is when a wife walks in on her husband with another woman; at first glance, it looks as if he is guilty of something just because of the circumstances. Prima facie is defined as something that has been proven or assumed to be true unless there is evidence presented to the contrary.
Similarly, you may ask, what are the elements of a prima facie case?
The elements of a prima facie discrimination case are:
- The employee is in a protected class (based on race, gender, and so on).
- The employee was qualified for the position.
- The employee was rejected for the position -- in other words, the applicants was not hired, or the employee was not promoted or was fired.
