HB 427 -- Workplace Domestic Violence Safety and Education
This bill establishes the Workplace Domestic Violence Safety and
Education Program Act. The Department of Labor and Industrial
Relations in consultation with the Department of Health and
Senior Services, State Highway Patrol, Missouri Coalition Against
Domestic Violence, and other interested entities will develop the
program. The program will provide businesses with the best
practices, policies, and procedures available to promote domestic
violence awareness in the workplace, assist affected employees,
and create a safe workplace.
An employer is prohibited from:
(1) Transmitting an employee's or customer's full name on a
public address system; and
(2) Providing unauthorized persons with an employee's work
schedule or other personal information.
Any person or entity in violation is guilty of a class B
misdemeanor and is civilly liable for any resulting damages.
An employee or customer that reports a violation or suspected
violation is not to be retaliated against by the owner or
management of the business provided there is reasonable cause to
believe a violation has occurred.
