Hi, I had a question regarding overtime pay in Missouri

Lawyer's Assistant: Because employment law varies from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?

Missouri

Lawyer's Assistant: Is the employment agreement "at will," union, full time or part time?

It was full time, I was just laid off over the weekend.

Lawyer's Assistant: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?

Not that I can think of.
