August 18, 2017

A new Missouri law that affects employment discrimination and whistleblowing claims will take effect on August 28, 2017.  This law will change the standard for discrimination claims, as well as change the amount of damages available and who may be sued.  The law also addresses whistleblower claims.  Employers should consider updating their workplace policies and handbooks with the assistance of counsel in light of these changes.
