Combating Age Discrimination At Work
Under the Missouri Human Rights Act and the Age Discrimination in Employment Act, it is illegal for an employer to discriminate against you because you are over the age of 40.
Pursuing a case for discrimination is different than other types of cases. There is a specific process one must follow to preserve his or her right to sue in court (see our Employment Discrimination page for more details).
The age discrimination suit process can be complicated. It may be extremely beneficial to have someone fighting for you through the complaint process and in your lawsuit. How the Charge is completed may affect who the employee can sue; where they can sue; as well as the compensation they may be eligible to receive.
