When does wrongful termination or discrimination occur?
It can be challenging to prove a case of workplace discrimination or wrongful termination. A majority of jobs in the state of Missouri are “at-will,” which means an employer can choose to let an employee go for any reason, at any moment—so long as those reasons are not illegal or discriminatory in nature.
Missouri employers may also not treat employees as “at-will” when there are employment contracts in place that specify contract duration or otherwise establish specific grounds for termination.
Another exception Missouri courts have recognized to “at-will” employment provides that employers cannot terminate workers for refusing to break the law at their employer’s direction, or for being whistleblowers, reporting wrongdoing to supervisors or to the authorities.
With experience as a wrongful termination law firm representing clients on both sides of employment law disputes, we have a comprehensive understanding of how to build any type of case.
