Employment: Retaliatory Discharge-Jurisdiction Front Pay

Where appellants challenged a judgment entered on a jury verdict in favor of respondent on her retaliatory discharge claim, the cause of action arose out of Missouri and an appellant purposefully availed itself of the privilege of conducting activities in Missouri to establish minimum contacts, so jurisdiction was proper, and the evidence sufficiently showed that the appellant was an employer of respondent, and the judgment is affirmed because the respondent made a submissible case of retaliatory discharge, the appellants did not show evidentiary error, and the trial court did not abuse its discretion in awarding front pay.

Judgment is affirmed.
