Age discrimination is prohibited under both federal and state labor laws. Discrimination covers current employees, former employees, and job applicants. Under the Missouri Human Rights Act, individuals from age 40 to 70 are protected from employment discrimination based upon age. Among others, common discriminatory practices affect:

  • Compensation, including benefits and pay;
  • Hiring decisions;
  • Job promotions or failure to promote;
  • Demotion or removal from projects;
  • Failure to train;
  • Harassment;
  • Wrongful termination.
