Thank you for your reply.
Missouri has no mandatory break laws and as long as the employer pays the employee for all hours worked as an hourly employee or pays salary, the MO law does not mandate lunch breaks or any breaks, that is solely at the employer's discretion.
Raises are also not governed by MO or federal law. Raises are up to the employer in at will employment. So any raises given an employee are based on the employer's policy and discretion I am afraid, as there is no law governing raises.
