Discussing your situation with your employer can be beneficial

There are many employees in Missouri who endure substandard working conditions, long hours and wages that are far too low. Unfortunately, many are unsure how to improve their situation while others may not even know that they have the right to take legal action against their employer.

Of course, it may be helpful to confront your employer first, as there may have been a clerical error or some other mistake that has resulted in the mistreatment you are experiencing. However, if they refuse to amend the situation or they attempt to intimidate you by threatening dismissal, then it is possible that filing a claim could be the way forward.

If you feel that your hours are unreasonable or illegal, that you are not being fairly paid or that your rights are being breached in some other way, do not be afraid to stand up for the fair treatment you deserve. Not only might you be able to improve you own working conditions, but it could even help future employees, by bringing your employer to justice and perhaps even causing them to amend their practices.

It might seem like a daunting task to undertake, but it is more than worth it to secure the fair working policies that you deserve. Furthermore, a successful claim might not only recoup the wages you are owed, but could even lead to you receiving an additional compensatory award. Our page on wage and hour laws has more detailed information about the options available to you. Meanwhile, an attorney could also prove useful as he or she may be able to help you prepare your claim and pursue a just resolution to your situation.
