Workplace Harassment

July 20th, 2016


Regardless of how close you are with your colleagues, it’s always important to keep a check on your workplace conduct. In Missouri, a person may be denied benefits upon termination for misconduct connected with work in which there was a knowing disregard for the standards of conduct. The courts recently found, however, that vulgar statements and physical slaps to the backside of a co-worker would not constitute violence in the workplace and was not considered a knowing disregard because it was not in violation of an express work rule.
