Missouri & Illinois Employment Law Attorneys

Employers also have to give their employees certain rights regarding their hours and benefits. For example, the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) guarantees a minimum wage as well as time-and-a-half compensation for overtime work. The Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA) guarantees employees of medium-to-large- size business the right to return to their jobs after taking maternity leave or sick leave. The Employee Retirement Income Security Act (ERISA) protects employees who have or who may earn benefits from those benefits being taken away in certain circumstances.

At-Will Employment and Discrimination Law

Most employment (particularly in Missouri) is at-will. That means you can be fired at any time for no reason. But this does not mean that workers have no rights. An employer can fire you for no reason—but not for a bad reason. In other words, if the firing is motivated by a discriminatory intent, such as racial or gender prejudice, it is illegal.
