Missouri Employment Law Attorneys
In Missouri, which is an at-will employment state, an employer is not legally required to provide a cause for dismissal. This does not mean, however, that an employer can fire an employee for any reason, and there are many circumstances under which an employer is legally barred from terminating employment.
If you have been fired in Missouri, and you believe that you were wrongfully terminated, it is important to know your rights and what the law says regarding your situation. At the law office of Holman Schiavone, LLC, our lawyers represent employees' rights in cases of wrongful termination on the basis of discrimination, harassment and other violations of the law. We have experience confronting employers of every size and are assertive in protecting the rights of our clients.
