The Law in Missouri is Clear: Race Discrimination is Illegal
Under Missouri law, equal employment opportunity cannot be denied to any person because of his/her racial group or perceived racial group, his/her race-linked characteristics (e.g., hair texture, color, facial features), or because of his/her marriage to or association with someone of a particular race or color.
Job requirements must be uniformly and consistently applied to persons of all races and colors.
Types of unlawful racial discrimination include:
Missouri and federal law prohibit offensive conduct, such as racial or ethnic slurs, racial “jokes”, derogatory comments, or other verbal or physical conduct based on an individual’s race/color.
Harassment or creating a hostile environment would mean the conduct is unwelcome and offensive, and has to be severe or pervasive. Missouri employers are required to take appropriate steps to prevent and correct unlawful harassment and discrimination.
Terms, Conditions, and Privileges
Missouri and federal law prohibit discrimination in compensation and other terms, conditions, and privileges of employment. Thus, race or color cannot be the basis for differences in the following:
- Compensation and benefits
- Promotions and demotions
- Job assignments and training
- Employee training
- Wrongful termination
