MO State Merit System Employees have Service Letter rights too
Missouri State Government Merit System employees have a right that is similar to the more well-known Service Letter law. See MO Law 36.470 – Missouri State Employees are entitled to a Service Letter. The Law defines the Service Letter as “a letter setting forth the nature and character of service rendered by the employee, the duration thereof, and truly stating for what cause, if any, the employee has been discharged from or has quit such employment.”
BUT —- This special law for State Government Employees (36.470) is very different from the Service Letter Law that applies to private employees (290.140). See also My Service Letter article about 290.140.
That’s all I want to say about 36.470 (the Service Letter rights of State Merit System employees) at this time. To learn about the Service Letter rights for private employees, see My other Service Letter article, about 290.140.
