The Missouri House recently passed a bill that may change the way that workplace lawsuits are handled. If the legislation is approved by the state's senate and governor, individuals who file workplace discrimination lawsuits will have to prove that discrimination was a "motivating" rather than a "contributing" factor.This is not the first time that this type of legislation has been proposed. Similar bills were vetoed by the governor in 2011 and 2012. Proponents of the bill state that its passage will reduce the number of frivolous lawsuits filed in the state. They believe that the law will lead to greater job creation and attract businesses to move to the state, and they also claim that the law will bring the state in line with federal regulations regarding workplace discrimination.
