Our Employment Law Attorneys Help People in Missouri and Kansas Get Justice
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 or Kansas, and you believe that you were wrongfully terminated, it is important to know your rights and what the law says regarding your situation.
At 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. The size of your employer is not an issue. The strength of your employers’ defense lawyers is not important. We confront employers of every size and protect the rights and interests of our clients vigorously in all cases.
Please call us in Kansas City at (816) 399-5149 to schedule a free initial consultation with one of our experienced attorneys.
