    it is not because

    Can one say

    a. It is not because he worked there last year that he works there this year.
    b. He doesn't work there this year because he worked there last year.
    c. He doesn't necessarily work there this year because he worked there last year.
    d. He doesn't necessarily work there this year just because he worked there last year.

    The meaning I have in mind is this:
    We know that he worked there last year but that does not mean that he works there this year.

    Many Thanks.
