The CTI study found that one-third of respondents faced what they called a negative bias from employers.

Direct evidence includes an employer blatantly telling an employee that he or she didn't get a job because of gender, race or another protected attribute. Therefore, an employee may have to rely on other types of evidence such as how other similarly situated employees were treated by the employer.
