Understanding Retaliatory Discharge In The Workplace
Most employment in Kansas and Missouri is “at will.” This means you work at your will and at the will of your employer. However, there are certain actions an employer cannot take. Of these prohibited actions, an employer cannot terminate an employee for filing a workers’ compensation claim or for complaining about discrimination in the workplace. If you have been retaliated against for either, you have legal options.

In addition to problems you may encounter while seeking benefits, you can face problems at the hands of your employer.

You may be entitled to compensation for lost wages and other financial losses. I am Michael. J.

Were You Fired For Complaining About Discrimination?
Did you make a complaint about discrimination in the workplace? You cannot be retaliated against for complaining about age, race, sex, religious or other types of discrimination. Claims for retaliatory discharge based upon complaining about discrimination should be brought within six months.
