Workplace Discrimination Attorneys in St. Louis

Buchanan, Williams & O’Brien, P.C. Can Help You

If you file a workers’ compensation claim, there are laws to protect you from retaliation or discrimination from your employer. Our workplace discrimination attorneys in St. Louis understand that the law gives employees the right to recover benefits if they have been injured at work, and we represent clients in St. Louis, Brentwood, Joplin, and throughout Southwest Missouri in the event their employer impedes on this right by firing, demoting, or harassing them for making a claim.

It is not in an employer’s best interest for an employee to file a workers’ comp claim, so some employers try to discourage from making claims—especially if the employer is self-insured and would be paying the benefits out of their own pockets. Buchanan, Williams & O’Brien, P.C. has seen cases in which an employer will fire an employee if they attempt to pursue full benefits for permanent injuries sustained on the job. We believe in fighting for the rights of these employees, and we are here to help.

If you feel you are being discriminated against at work, call our St. Louis workplace discrimination attorneys at (314) 635-7606 right now.

Workers’ Compensation Laws in Missouri

In the state of Missouri, the law now favors employees who have been victims of workers’ comp discrimination. This recent change to the law eases the burden of proof. Before, an employee would need to prove that filing a workers’ comp claim was the sole and exclusive reason for harassment, retaliation, or discrimination. This was difficult to prove since an employer could give any other reason for firing or demoting an employee and win the case.

Under the new version of the law enacted by the Missouri Supreme Court, a workers’ compensation claim only needs to be shown to have contributed to the dismissal of an employee rather than to have been the sole reason. In this way, it holds employers to a higher standard and improves accountability for improper discrimination.

With more than 100 work comp cases under our belt, our workplace discrimination attorneys in St. Louis are ready to discuss your case and determine if we can help you pursue the benefits to which you are entitled.
