Employment Discrimination

Employers are prohibited by both state and federal laws from discriminating against or harassing employees on the basis of sex, race, national origin, religion, age, or disability. The Missouri law is referred to as the Missouri Human Rights Act. The federal law is called Title VII. Employers are also prohibited from retaliating against employees for attempting to protect their rights under both the Missouri Human Rights Act and Title VII. The law office of Daniel J. Voss has substantial experience representing employees in workplace discrimination, harassment, and retaliation claims.

Workplace and employment discrimination can occur in an employee’s hiring, firing, disciplining, training, promoting, or in harassment in the workplace when it involves an employee’s race, age, national origin, sex, disability, pregnancy or religion. Discrimination can also occur after an employee files a workers’ compensation claim or after a worker complains of an employer’s violation of a law or regulation (i.e., whistle blowing). 

Daniel J. Voss protects the rights of employees who have suffered discrimination in matters involving:

  • Sexual Harassment

Unpaid Overtime and "Off the Clock" Work

Daniel J. Voss also represents employees who may be owed unpaid wages and overtime under the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) for working more than 40 hours in a week.
