Court Rules For Injured Workers

missouri capitol

The Missouri Supreme Court has ruled in favor of giving legal protections to injured workers who are fired from their jobs.  In a 5-2 decision this week, the court overturned thirty years of precedent and ruled that employees no longer have to prove that workers’ compensation claims were the exclusive factor for their dismissal in order to win lawsuits claiming retaliation.  Instead, the court said employees must show only that worker’s compensation claims were a contributing factor in their subsequent dismissal from the job.
