SB 111 - This act modifies state law by broadening what is considered disqualifying misconduct. It would preclude an individual from receiving unemployment benefits when the misconduct in question occurs outside of work, but affects an employees ability or fitness to discharge the duties of their employment. The act further provides that employees who are a member of a religious organization which have tenants or teachings opposed to the acceptance of insurance benefits, an opportunity to prospectively reject the provisions of Chapter 287, RSMo.

This act is a combination of Senate Bills 742 & 743 (2004).
