Republicans reintroduced a bill that has been turned down several times in the past. The proposed new name of the bill is the Working Families Flexibility Act.The current wage laws require employers to pay employees time and a half for any time that exceeds 40 hours in a week. This law does not cover independent contractors, and there are clauses regarding salaried workers. Missouri residents could consult with an employment law attorney as a resource to understand the current law and proposed legislation.
The federal government continues to incur debt, and while legislators cannot agree on exactly how it to gain and allocate federal funds, they don't want them wasted. Federal employees who report any fraud, waste or abuse that is being committed during government operations are protected under federal law from retaliation.
Workplace discrimination in Missouri creates an unfair environment for affected employees and creates potential economic repercussions for the employers. In addition to the employer's litigation cost associated with employment discrimination claims by the protected classes of employees, workplace discrimination has a larger impact on the workplace environment. It is reported specific classifications of employees are impacted the most by workplace discrimination.
There are many different types of discrimination that employees are protected against by state and federal law. One of the ways an employee could illegally be discriminated against is by age. The Age Discrimination Act of 1967 was enacted to codify into law the definition of age discrimination, but like all laws require constant attention and possible amendment.
