Age Discrimination under Missouri Human Rights Act

Two employees who alleged that they were wrongfully terminated due to age were entitled to a new trial because the employer wrongfully argued that they must prove “but for” their age, they would not have been terminated. The Court held that the employees must only show in Missouri that the victims protected category (age, race, sex, disability, religion, etc) “contributed” to the termination. Thomas v. McKeever’s Enterprises, WD 73675.
