Rhode Island is an “at will” state, meaning that, if you don’t have an employment contract, generally you can be fired for any reason or no reason at all. However, state and federal law protect people from being discriminated against on several bases including:
- Race, ethnicity, and national origin
- Genetic information
- Sexual orientation
Most of these types of claims require completion of an administrative process and there are strict timelines and rules. It is difficult, if not impossible, to adequately represent yourself. Enright Law will take control of your case from the outset and make sure that you’re in the best position possible to maximize your recovery. But that’s not all. Once you hire Enright Law, I take the responsibility, anxiety, and stress of the situation off your shoulders and put them directly onto mine.
Of course, reaching a fair and satisfactory compromise is always my first priority. But Enright Law is ready, willing, and able to litigate your discrimination case as far as necessary to get you the remedy you seek and deserve. That includes the possibility of back pay, compensation for any harm caused, attorneys’ fees and costs, and even punitive damages.
