Missouri Supreme Court to consider whether Missouri Human Rights Act applies to employees who live and work outside Missouri

June 7, 2019

The Missouri Supreme Court will be considering whether an employee of a Missouri corporation can sue for employment discrimination under Missouri law, when that employee lived and worked in Iowa.  A trial court ruled to let the case proceed, but the Supreme Court will first decide whether the employee can bring a claim under Missouri law on the basis that some of the allegedly wrongful acts happened in Missouri.
