What to Do if You Were Wrongfully Terminated
The first thing you should understand is that Rhode Island is an employment-at-will state, which means that employers can hire or fire any employee for any reason (or no reason at all). That said, firing an employee due to a protected characteristic (such as their race or sexual orientation) is prohibited, and if you were fired for this reason, you likely have a valid wrongful termination claim.
If you believe you were fired because of an act of discrimination or retaliation, the first thing you should do is ask your employer for a written statement regarding why he or she terminated your position. If this explanation seems strange or doesn’t make sense, you should do what you can to gather proof that your employer discriminated or retaliated against you and bring this evidence to an experienced wrongful termination lawyer who can assess the circumstances of your case and file a wrongful termination claim on your behalf.
