Missouri Employee Rights

Employees have many protections under federal and state laws. These protections are in place to ensure that business owners and management act do not take unfair advantage of their workers. Unfortunately, some of these protections are violated on a regular basis.

Violating the rights of employees is not only morally wrong, but it can also lead to economic and non-economic damages to the employee whose rights were violated. If you believe that your rights have been violated by your employer, either through the actions of the owner, management, or other employees, you are encouraged to contact a Kansas City employment lawyer.

A Brief Look at the Most Common Forms of Employment Violations

All employees are protected by state and federal laws from workplace discrimination, harassment, and acts of retaliation. There are many ways in which these laws can be violated. However, there are some violations that occur more often than others.

Discrimination in the Workplace

Workplace discrimination can take many forms and is not just limited to the employees that already work for the business. Discrimination can also occur with hiring practices. All forms of discrimination are prohibited by state and federal laws.

Age Discrimination

Employees age 40 and over are protected from workplace discrimination based on their age. Decisions regarding hiring, promoting, laying off, project placement, job duties, and similar decisions cannot be based on the age of the employee. Missouri’s anti-discrimination statute only protects employees age 40-69. Once you turn 70, you are outside the age class protected from discrimination. Therefore, if you experienced age discrimination on or after your 70th birthday, you must exclusively rely on federal laws.

Sex Discrimination

Sex discrimination is illegal under state and several federal laws, including the Civil Rights Act of 1964. A person cannot be discriminated against or singled out based on their gender. This includes only hiring men or women for a specific position, retaliation for pregnancy or childbirth, unequal pay for the same job position, and hiring and firing practices. It is important to understand that sex discrimination applies equally to both sexes.

Racial Discrimination

Discrimination based on race is protected by several federal and state laws. Racial discrimination involves treating someone differently because of their race, perceived race, or if their relationship with people of a certain race. Racial discrimination applies to all races. Racial discrimination also includes harassment that is racial in nature. Such harassment can take the form of derogatory remarks, unfair criticism, racial slurs, inappropriate jokes, and a wide variety of other conduct.

Religious Discrimination

All employees have federal and state protections to observe any religion without discrimination. Additionally, there are protections in place that require employers to make accommodations for some religious practices within the workplace, such as allowing certain headwear to be worn, allowing times for prayers, and allowing days off for specific religious holidays.

Disability Discrimination

It is illegal to discriminate against someone based on disability or perceived disability. There are several federal and state laws that prevent employers from discriminating against those with a disability who could perform the job in question. If you believe that you have been a victim of this type of discrimination, speak with a disability attorney Kansas City about your rights to seek compensation.

Proving discrimination in the workplace can be difficult. Think about it; people do not come out and say, “I am not hiring you because you are Jewish” or “I am putting a new person in your position because we want someone who looks young to work our front office.” Employers that discriminate against their employees will use excuses like poor work performance or attendance issues to get rid of an employee they don’t like. When an employer gives a false reason for taking adverse action against an employee in order to hide a discriminatory motive, the false reason is referred to as “pretext.”

Proving pretext can be challenging unless you have the right Kansas City employment attorneys managing your case. Your attorneys will be able to obtain the evidence that is necessary to show how an action taken by the employer against you as an employee or potential employee was made based on discrimination, and not the reasons that they provided. A qualified Kansas City discrimination lawyer knows exactly where to look to find the information to back your case.


Sexual Harassment In The Workplace

Sexual harassment is actually a form of sex discrimination. If you think about it, the person doing the harassing generally only chooses one sex to harass. Since they are singling out a person based on their sex, it is, therefore, discrimination.

Sexual harassment, however, is one of the most pervasive forms of sex discrimination. Harassment often moves past sexual jokes and comments to physical contact and sometimes even sexual assault. If you believe that you are a victim of sexual harassment, you are encouraged to speak with a sexual harassment attorney Kansas City.

Sexual harassment generally falls into the following two categories:

Quid Pro Quo

This type of harassment occurs when a business owner or someone in management requires some form of sexual favor for a job position, job advancement, or protection of a position.

Hostile Environment 

A hostile environment can be one where the owner, manager, or other employees are making working in the business very uncomfortable because of their sexually motivated actions or speech.

Many people who are victims of sexual harassment are embarrassed by the entire situation. Sometimes they engage in self-blaming and other destructive thoughts. This can cause people to quit their jobs and face financial harm, fall into a depression, consider self-harm, or worse.

We are here to advocate and empower victims of sexual harassment. As a top Kansas City employment lawyer, we promise that we will show you the compassion that you deserve for this most uncomfortable situation. We will also help you seek justice for the pain you have endured as a sexual harassment victim.

Wrongful Termination

In Missouri, employers and employees have the right to end their working relationship without reason. This is known as “at-will” and is a law designed to protect employees from being obligated to a single employer. The at-will laws are meant to give an employee the opportunity to move and further their careers with other companies without retribution.

This law also applies to employers. It gives the employers a right to end employment relations with any employee without giving any specific cause – as long as the reasons are legal. That is the key phrase to this law. Employers cannot terminate an employee’s employment for reasons that are considered discriminatory, retaliatory, or otherwise against the law. This is considered wrongful termination.
