HR and Employment Law Resources for Missouri

Missouri state image

Missouri is about middle of the road when it comes to being employer- or employee-friendly. There are many laws in the state that an employer must follow. For example, Missouri does not add to the list of federal protected classes, but it does expand coverage of its antidiscrimination law to employers with six or more employees. Missouri also has a law that bans an employer from refusing to hire, terminating or otherwise discriminating against employees for participating in off-duty, off-premises legal activities, such as smoking or drinking.

This page is a round-up of the state and municipal laws in Missouri.
