Wrongful Termination and Whistleblower Claims Under Missouri Law

In Missouri, an employee who does not have a contract which contains a statement of duration is an employee at-will. An “at will” employee may be discharged at any time, with or without cause. However, Missouri courts have recognized public policy exceptions to the employment at-will doctrine which establish the basis of wrongful termination claims.

Whistleblower Claims

If an employee reports that an employer or one of its employees violated the law, there are state and federal laws that provide protection to such an employee against unlawful retaliation for reporting such actions.  Federal and state whistleblower laws protect employees from retaliation by an employer for reporting actions as illegal activity or fraud. Retaliation can include negative changes to working conditions or employment status. Our firm represents employers, management and employees in whistleblower claims and other employment-related claims in Missouri.

An employee has a similar cause of action for wrongful discharge in Missouri if he or she was discharged for refusing to perform an illegal act, refusing to perform an act contrary to a strong mandate of public policy, reporting wrongdoing or violations of law or public policy by the employer or fellow employees or filing a workers' compensation claim.
