Missouri Law Update: Big Changes in Employment Discrimination Law Coming August 28, 2017

Edwin C. Ernst, IV, Principal at Carmody MacDonald, writes, "On June 30, 2017, Governor Eric Greitens signed legislation making sweeping changes to Missouri law governing workplace discrimination/retaliation. The new law amends the Missouri Human Rights Act (MHRA) and codifies certain whistleblower protections, effective August 28, 2017. Changes in the law include (i) the elimination of individual liability, (ii) a higher standard of proof for plaintiffs, (iii) increased potential for employers to avoid costly trials through summary judgment, (iv) new jury instructions, and (v) damages caps. These and other changes align Missouri law more closely with federal anti-discrimination law."
