SB 43 – DISCRIMINATION BILL ON THE SENATE FLOOR
Please get the word out:
The Senate is currently debating a bill that could further victimize employees who have been the victims of discrimination in the workplace. Those in favor of the bill claim that it is too easy to sue for discrimination in Missouri. This bill would actually allow discrimination without legal consequences because it removes protections for employees who have been discriminated against based on their age, ancestry, color, disability, sex, religion, race or nation of origin. The bill was the recent subject of a hearing when NAACP-MO President Rod Chapel had his microphone cut off.
An Associated Press report from today’s anti-discrimination press conference has been picked up by U.S. News & World Reports. Here is the link:
