Per section 28-44-18 of RI Employment Security Act I am denied

Resolved Question:

Per section 28-44-18 of RI Employment Security Act I am denied UC benifits. I was denied specifically for not following my former employers performance plan which is not why I was told was the reson for my termination. I had already gone through an action plan sucessfully and after changing departments was supposedly fired for not wearing a glove on my first night in the new department after a customer complaint. PLEASE HELP! It has been three months of waiting after repeated requests for a determination in my case.

If you are an "at-will" employee you can be terminated for any or no reason at all, so long as your termination is not based on discrimination as protected under the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission. In order to win an UE claim you would need to dispute the grounds for termination. If you in fact were not complying with the requirements of the job, then it would be extremely difficult to prevail, since lack of compliance can result in termination. Otherwise if you have evidence showing that the termination was not based on good cause, then you will need to ask to set for a trial and present your evidence and witnesses. This is a case where evidence is required.
