The Missouri Public Employer Labor Relations Assocation (MoPELRA)
was formed to provide the highest standard of excellence in assisting and representing state, county, municipal, local, and
school government in the area of labor relations and human resources. This is accomplished by providing educational
programs and seminars for acquiring knowledge in the general arena.
Issues such as the interpretation of the Fair Labor Standards Act
(FLSA), collective bargaining legislation in Missouri, violence in the workplace, legal implications of employee drug testing,
and discipline documentation have been discussed with our members at regional and national conferences. In addition,
the association, through its affiliation with the National Public Employer Labor Relations Association, has available a wide
variety of resources designed to assist human resource professionals in the public sector.
