Whether you have been wronged at work, school, a housing development or in a public setting, you may be able to seek recourse through the Missouri Human Rights Commission. MCHR was created as an avenue for Missourians who experience discrimination and allows for proper investigation of such complaints, as to not burden the judiciary with baseless claims. If you have become a victim of harassment of any kind, you could be protected by the MHCR and additional federal and state discrimination laws. We are experienced discrimination attorneys, and we will help you to identify which specific laws apply to your discrimination case and will subsequently go through the process of filing a MCHR charge of discrimination.
What kind of discrimination is covered under the MCHR?
- National Origin
We have represented dozens of victims who have been discriminated against and successfully obtained a “right to sue” from the Missouri Commission on Human Rights, which then allows us to file a civil lawsuit. A Notice of Right to Sue from MCHR allows us to file a lawsuit in court on the discriminatory acts alleged in the complaint made with MCHR. If you get a Notice of Right to Sue, then the MCHR investigation ceases, and we can formally proceed with a case. We have represented children, individuals, and employees after they had been wrongfully discriminated against and helped them recover for their anguish and economic damages.
Under the Missouri Human Rights Act, if the plaintiff wins his or her case, attorneys’ fees are automatically awarded. Therefore, if you prevail, your employer will have to pay for our services.
