Missouri and Kansas, like most states, recognizes the doctrine of "at will" employment, which means that in most cases your employer or you as an employee can break your employment relationship with no liability. There are a few exceptions to at will employment, including wrongful termination.
A wrongful termination may occur if you are fired on the basis of discrimination. State and federal law protects employees from being discriminated against based on gender, race, national origin, age or disability.
If you or a loved one is a victim of wrongful termination, you may be entitled to compensation for back pay and other potential damages.
How a Wrongful Termination Impacts Your Life
If you are fired from a job, you may lose your entire income. Additionally, being fired becomes part of your work history.
