Should you sign an employment contract?

You may be offered an employment contract for a variety of reasons in Missouri. Not every employer will require one, but if you are told you will need to sign a contract to begin employment, it may help to learn more about your rights. That includes knowing when to not sign one.

Know your wage and hour rights

If you are employed in Missouri, you and your co-workers may have questions about Missouri’s various wage and hour laws. At Hollingshead & Dudley, we believe that you deserve fair treatment and a hospitable environment in which to do your job.

Are political views protected by discrimination laws?

There are many types of discrimination you are protected against when it comes to employment. You cannot be fired for being a certain gender or race. Your employer cannot take adverse actions against you specifically because you are a member of a certain relgiion or because of your sexual orientation. However, not everything you do is protected. Your political affliation, for the most part, is not a protected class under state or federal employment laws in Missouri. 

What constitutes an employment contract?

Employment contracts may seem like a straightforward thing, but there are certain situations when a contract may be formed without an individual agreement. As a worker in Missouri, you are generally working under at-will employment, which means you can quit or be let go for any reason at any time. Your employment is not guaranteed. When you have a contract, though, it may stipulate specific details about your employment, including when you can and cannot be let go.
