Notice of Right To Sue Letter From the EEOC or Missouri Commission on Human Rights

Employees in Missouri are required to file a charge of discrimination with the EEOC or Missouri Commission on Human Rights from the date of an alleged violation of a law enforced by the agencies.  The charge is commonly "dual filed" with the EEOC and Missouri Commission on Human Rights to protect both State and Federal discrimination rights. Whether the charge has been filed with the EEOC or Missouri Commission on Human Rights, the employee and employer will be notified that a charge of discrimination has been filed and the parties will be given contact information of the investigator handling the case. Both parties will be asked to provide information to the investigator. An administrative charge must usually be lodged before a private lawsuit may be filed in court. 

The administrative agency that investigated a charge will generally make one of two decisions: (1) a reasonable cause determination that the law has been violated, or (2) the agency is unable to determine if the law has been violated. If the agency makes an unable to conclude on cause determination, the agency will dismiss the charge and issue a Right to Sue Notice requiring the plaintiff to file a lawsuit in court within 90 days.  If the agency makes a reasonable cause determination, the agency will try to resolve the case by engaging in conciliation discussions with the employer.  The Right to Sue letter may also be obtained under some circumstances upon request by the charging party.
