Saint Louis, MO asked in Employment Law and Employment Discrimination for Missouri

Q: I submitted a background check upon interviewing with a company. They hired me. At orientation they asked for another

I never completed the second check yet the company fired me citing the second check and their corporate partners having an issue. Shouldn’t all that have been cleared up with my first check and if so are they at risk for discriminating against me

A: It is unclear to me what type of unlawful discrimination you believe occurred. If you believe the discrimination was based upon your arrest record or criminal history the you might find this interesting.

Missouri is an employment-at-will state. Only discrimination based upon limited things, such as age, race, religion, and national origin, is unlawful.
