Business Interest try to defang Missouri Whistleblower Law
Business interests are pushing for a change in Missouri’s whistleblower law that would grant employers greater protection from lawsuits. Under the change, whistleblowers suing for wrongful termination would have to show that their companies violated the law. Under the current law, a reasonable belief that illegal activity occurred is the threshold.
According to a story in today’s editions of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch, the state legislature remains at odds over whether this provision should be included in a 51-page omnibus bill on employment law, and the clock is ticking on this lawmaking session. Any change in the law could have a lasting impact on how safe Missouri employees feel to report corporate misdeeds and whether companies view the state as a good place to do business.
