The Pennsylvania Supreme Court has held that an employer is not under a duty for purposes of the Human Relations Act to set out specific job requirements for each position it offers. Furthermore, a complainant under the Act, in order to establish a prima facie case of discrimination, must have been "best able and most competent" for the position.
