I have been terminated from my job for performance. However, I have never had one write up in my personal file. I have been told that Missouri has a law that states you may not terminate a person over 45, I am 49, unless you have a good reason. Since I have no write ups in my file, does my employer have a valid reason to fire me. And does Missouri have such a law?

Re: Wrongful Termination
Under the facts as you have described, I do not believe you have a viable legal recourse. Whomever told you that Missouri does not allow a person over 49 yrs old to be terminated, must have some other state in mind.
Perhaps you misstated the facts, and an attorney could advise you ofa viable action after heraring all of the facts. I suggest that you contact an attorney in your area, and tell them all of the facts.
