Customer Question
Good afternoon, what...

Good afternoon, what is the statute of limitations on unlawful termination and unlawful denial of employment in Missouri?

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

I think it was considered part time

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

Independent truck driver

Lawyer's Assistant: What state is this in? And how old is the truck?

I was accused of damaging a new truck and terminated even after I proved I didn't do it

Before I answer a bit more detail would be helpful please.

What is the basis for the unlawful termination?

1. Do you have a written employment agreement for a fixed term requiring cause for termination, discipline or demotion?

2. Do you believe you were treated differently than other employees due to race, religion, ethnicity, etc.?

I was terminated because I was accused of damaging a truck after I submitted proof that I did not damage it. Also, I was denied employment with the same company within recent years for the same damage.
