Discrimination and Human Rights in Missouri

Gain a better understanding of the Human Rights Act amendments and what to expect in the future.

The Missouri legislature has passed a bill that makes sweeping amendments to the Missouri Human Rights Act, including adopting the 'motivating factor' standard for employment discrimination claims and excluding individuals from liability, along with other matters. You will learn what the new standard means, changes that will impact employers, how the modification will affect individual liability, caps for punitive and compensatory damages, and when this bill could potentially go into effect.
