Labor and Employment

The MCHR investigates complaints of discrimination in housing, employment, and places of public accommodations based on race, color, religion, national origin, ancestry, sex, disability, age (in employment only), and familial status (in housing only). The MCHR also provides training to inform people of their rights and responsibilities under the Missouri Human Rights Act.  Contact the MCHR for more information at www.labor.mo.gov/mohumanrights then call us if you need advice.     

If you are injured on the job or have been exposed to occupational disease in the course and scope of your employment, the Missouri Workers' Compensation law provides some relief from the financial strain of being injured and/or unable to return to work.  If you are an employer and want to know more about your rights and responsibilities, contact the Missouri Department of Labor for more information at www.labor.mo.gov/DWC/Injured_Workers then call us for advice.  

If you are unemployed and have questions regarding your rights, or if you are an employer and simply need more information regarding the law in this area, visit www.labor.mo.gov/DES/Claims/

Many of your basic questions regarding Missouri minimum wage and Missouri wage and hour laws can be answered by visiting www.labor.mo.gov/DLS/MinimumWage/.  For example, did you know that Employers engaged in retail or service businesses whose annual gross income is less than $500,000 are not required to pay the state minimum wage rate? Employers not subject to the minimum wage law can pay employees wages of their choosing. For more information, please contact the United States Department of Labor.  Please contact our office if you need advice. 

The U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) enforces federal laws proscribing discrimination in the workplace based on race, color, religion, sex, pregnancy, national origin, age, disability or use of genetic information.     These laws are applicable to both job applicants and employees.  The EEOC provides information about filing a charge of discrimination along with the investigative process.  It has useful information for employers especially small business owners with limited resources.  Visit www.eeoc.gov for more information regarding his evolving field of law.  If you have additional questions or if need legal advice, call us. We are individuals and small business owner's advocates for justice.  

The National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) enforces the National Labor relations Act (NLRA).  The NLRA proscribes certain behavior in the context of union representation, collective  bargaining and in some cases, provides protection for individuals speaking on behalf of others.  Visit www.nlrb.gov/faq/nlrb to better understand your rights and obligation pursuant to the NLRA.  Contact our office to discuss your claim and for advice regarding this area of law.
