Lee’s Summit senator seeks to expand work ‘misconduct’ rule

JEFFERSON CITY -- A Missouri senator wants to expand the kind of job-related misconduct that can disqualify people from receiving unemployment benefits.

Missouri law currently defines employee misconduct as breaking an employer’s rules deliberately.

The bill by Republican Sen. Will Kraus, of Lee’s Summit, would include accidental violations — unless the employee could prove ignorance of the rule’s existence.

The legislation would also broaden the definition of “misconduct” to include violations of an employer’s rules outside the workplace and on an employee’s own time.

Kraus’ bill, SB816, has been endorsed by a Senate committee and could be debated by the full chamber in the coming weeks.

1. This is insane.

How can the American people be so willing to be treated this way? Good Lord. It's like Henry Ford going into the factory owned homes of his workers and making sure every wife had a can of green beans in her cupboard.

And right-wing freaks are worried about socialism and communism? Why don't the try fascism on for size?

2. The Chinese government put restriction on how people can live outside of work

Here in America we choose to have the corporations do it.

5. I didn't really have to read all that far to

make an educated guess as to who drew up the legislation. Kraus is a real piece of crap who doesn't seem to give a darn about his actual constituents.

I notice the article has a lively discussion, with many comments about how the law. Most seem pretty upset about it and only a few seem to be in favor. A few were making comments about how Missouri shouldn't be an at-will state anymore if this is what to expect.
