Violation of Public Policy in Missouri or Kansas?

Our Government Oversight Lawyers in Kansas City Can Help

There are many circumstances in which employers can violate the law by wrongfully terminating employees, even in an at-will employment state like Missouri. One example of those circumstances involves violations of public policy. If an employee refuses to do something that was unlawful, exercises a legal right or reports unlawful employer conduct — and is fired as a result — wrongful termination has taken place, and the employee may take legal action.

Examples of Public Policy Violations in Wrongful Termination Cases

  • A refusal to do something that is unlawful such as submitting false reports, committing perjury or performing actions that you are not licensed to perform
  • Performing a duty that is required by law and requires being absent from work, such as serving on a jury or providing court testimony in response to a subpoena
  • Exercising a legal right, such as filing a claim for workers' compensation benefits after a workplace injury
  • Reporting unlawful employer conduct, also known as whistleblowing, if the employer is violating state or federal laws
