Why is proving employment discrimination difficult?

There are many different types of discrimination that you could be exposed to in a working environment in Missouri. While discrimination is prohibited by law, it still happens all the time. This is not because people are unaware that it is illegal or that people are not reporting it. One of the biggest problems with discrimination is that it is difficult to prove, so people often get away with doing it.

Signs you might be at risk of workplace discrimination

Discrimination in the workplace is a very serious matter. If you fall into a protected class that, you deserve to receive equal treatment and accommodation in the workplace. For example, if your age, gender or race qualifies you as a protected class, then you expect your work environment to be safe and free from discriminatory behavior.

How to know when flirtatious workplace behavior crosses the line?

Many employers in Missouri have policies in place to prevent workplace behavior. It is still an activity that commonly happens on the job every day. It is not unusual for workers to find themselves on the receiving end of compliments and other friendly, flirtatious behavior. While some individuals do not mind receiving and exchanging this type of treatment from their co-workers, there are some who question if it is acceptable. 

Can NFL players be fired for taking a knee?

There has been a lot of controversy in Missouri and across the country about NFL players taking a knee during the playing of the National Anthem before games. It seems the country is quite divided over whether this is a freedom of speech issue or a respect for veterans issue. Even the president has spoken out about it. It seems one major concern is whether these players could be fired due to their actions. 

What are the limitation of age discrimination laws?

Discrimination in the workplace is something that despite all the laws and hardwork of legislatures still is prevalant. One area that often does not get the attention it deserves is age discrimination. If you are over the age of 40, then it is important to vigilant about how Missouri employers are treating you when it comes to your age. Making sure that you do not become a victim of discrimination simply because of how old you are can be tough, though, due to limitations on discrimination laws.
