Legal Representation For Employers And Employees Throughout Rhode Island
Intelligent And Comprehensive Employment Law Representation
Our firm handles a wide range of cases involving employees’ rights, employee vs. employer disputes as well as other matters, including:
Sexual harassment: Unwanted sexual remarks, demands for sexual favors, and a hostile work environment filled with sexually explicit material and comments can all constitute illegal sexual harassment. If your employer is not taking your sexual harassment complaint seriously, we can help.
Employment discrimination: Federal and/or state law prohibits employers from discriminating against employees on the basis of their membership in a protected class. Accordingly, you may be entitled to damages caused by the following forms of illegal employment discrimination:
- Age discrimination
- Race discrimination
- Sex or gender discrimination
- Religious discrimination
- Disability or pregnancy discrimination
- Sexual orientation discrimination
Wrongful termination: Were you fired for being a whistleblower? Were you let go in violation of your employment contract? If so, we may be able to help you file a claim for wrongful termination or retaliatory discharge. We can also help you file a qui tam action to expose fraudulent conduct against the federal government.
Fair Labor Standards Act: We have a reputation for zealously advocating for workers who are exploited by their employers. If you have been forced to work overtime or off the clock without pay, our lawyers will be happy to evaluate your potential wage and hour claim.
Unemployment compensation: We fight for employees in unemployment compensation claims. If your employer is incorrectly saying that you voluntarily quit or you committed misconduct by violating company policy, you have a right to appeal a denial of unemployment compensation benefits.
Employee rights and benefits: State and federal law provides certain rights and benefits for employees. If your employer is refusing to abide by these laws, our firm will provide aggressive and skilled advocacy. We can assist you with matters involving:
- ERISA (Employment Retirement Income Security Act)
- FMLA (Family and Medical Leave Act)
- Employment contract violations
- Equal Pay Act
