Re: Released Back to Work but Layed Off Permanently
Because Missouri is an At-Will-Work state, either side can terminate employment anytime with good, bad no reason.
As long as you're still under restrictions, you are eligible for wage loss payments.
If they fail to do the right thing, consult and retain a lawyer.
Missouri follows the Employment-At-Will doctrine.
This means that both the employer and employee can terminate the employment relationship at any time and for any reason, as long as there is no employment contract to the contrary, there is no discrimination under civil rights laws (based on race, color, age, national origin, religion, ancestry, sex, or physical/mental disability), no merit laws apply, or the state’s limited public policy exception does not apply.
