Federal law places restrictions on when 14 and 15-year old employees can work during the school year, but no similar restrictions apply once you turn 16. There may be other applicable Missouri labor laws, however, so you should consult a Missouri employment attorney regarding your situation.
I put in my notice after being informed of a investigation that would probably cost my job. I gave my resignation with the stipulation that I would be rehire-able and coded off as voluntary. I was asked to stay on an additional week which I did. Two weeks afterwards the employer changed my status... Read more »
You state that you resigned with a "stipulation." Unless I am missing something, it appears that your employer didn't agree with the stipulation and therefore availed itself of the benefits of employment at will and terminated your employment.
Upon receiving my last wage statement, I found my pay had been reduced by $2 p/hr. I was not notified of any rate change. I have talked to my boss and to HR about this and they have told me that because I am not doing a specific task as my job (relief driver) that I am not entitled to the pay -... Read more »
There is a Missouri statute that may apply. It's a pretty weak one, however.

To pay back money that was not stolen from them and had me come in after I was fired to train someone to use computer I have emails were they say I stoled from them with I didn’t, I have proof. Can I sue for defamation of character I had 10yr with them with never one issue
Defamation cases are tough and expensive in Missouri. If your employer merely sent false emails to you and terminated your employment because it believed you committed theft, then you don't have a basis for a defamation suit in Missouri. Defamation requires publication of the false statement...Read more »

I live and work in St louis mo. My employer refused to pay me any sort of wage for the first 1.5 months of my employment stating that he didnt have to since i was in "training" but i was normally here alone running everything. I work approximately 57 hours a week. I was allowed to keep only my tips.
The short answer is "yes," you generally should be paid for training and I believe you might have a strong claim to assert. Whether you are a tipped employee may determine the wage due. Contact an attorney in the St. Louis area to discuss representation in going after your employer for...Read more »

After a few months, we noticed that she was very frequently working weekends and seemed to have few days off. We asked her about it, and she expressed frustration with her schedule.... Read more »
This would depend on what her contract says, but based on your description, it sounds like her contract is silent on her schedule or hours of work. If this is the case, then there isn't much that can be done from a legal standpoint other than to ensure she is being properly paid for the work...Read more »

Hello, more information is needed here. You need to meet several requirements to be exempt from overtime: certain job duties and to receive pay on a salary basis. I would reach out to an employment law attorney in your state for a consultation.
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
