Missouri Diversity: What you need to know

The Missouri Human Rights Act (MHRA) prohibits employment practices that discriminate on the basis of race, color, religion, national origin, sex (including sexual harassment), ancestry, age (40 years and older but less than 70), or disability. The MHRA covers all public employers and private employers with six or more employees within the state (MO Rev. Stat. Sec. 213.010et seq.).

The mission of the Missouri Commission on Human Rights (MCHR) is to develop, recommend, and implement ways to prevent and eliminate discrimination and to provide fair and timely resolutions of discrimination claims through enforcement of the MHRA. The MCHR offers training and education about discrimination in the workplace through specially designed Equal Opportunity Training Programs in areas like disability awareness, diversity, and investigating a discrimination complaint.
