Areas of Practice

Matt O’Laughlin has devoted his career to representing workers who have been treated unfairly by corporations and government agencies. He has successfully represented workers at all stages of litigation. Prior to his work representing employees, Matt served the people of the State of Missouri as an Assistant Attorney General. He handles a variety of cases, including sexual harassment, retaliation/whistleblower claims, discrimination, consumer protection, and wage and hour violations.

Matt also has significant experience handling appeals at the state and federal level. Among the landmark cases he has argued at the appellate level is Doe ex rel. Subia v. Kansas City Missouri School District, 372 S.W. 3d 43 (Mo. App. W.D. 2012), the first case in Missouri to hold that the Missouri Human Rights Act prohibits student-on-student sexual assault and harassment and that the standard of proof for such cases should be lower than that required under federal law. Most recently, he successfully argued the seminal case of Tolentino v. Starwood Hotels and Resorts Worldwide Inc. (Mo. 2014), the first case in which the Missouri Supreme Court interpreted the Missouri Minimum Wage Law. The Court held that the joint employer doctrine could hold a hotel responsible for the failure of its temporary staffing agencies to pay its employees’ wages.
