Employment Law & Employment Discrimination

Employment discrimination Attorneys, Whistleblower Attorneys in Rhode Island

Handling State and Federal Employment Disputes

If you have been treated unfairly at work, or even lost your job through retaliation, discrimination or sexual harassment, you want an experienced lawyer to help you recover for any losses. Though federal statutes set a floor for recovery for wrongful acts by employers, Rhode Island has enacted laws that may be more protective of workers. You want an attorney who knows the laws and can fully protect your interests.

At the law office of Savage & Savage, we have handled employment law matters since 1995. We carefully select the employment law cases we handle, so that we commit our full attention and resources to every aspect of your case. Though we will work to negotiate a settlement that meets your needs, we are experienced trial attorneys who are always willing to take your case to court to get the right result.

We provide a free initial telephone consultation to all clients. Contact our office online or call us at 401-732-9500 to schedule an appointment.

Our Employment Law Practice

We handle employment disputes under all major federal statutes, including:

  • Title VII
  • Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA)
  • Age Discrimination in Employment Act (ADEA)
  • Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA)
  • Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA)

We also represent people who have claims under the Rhode Island Fair Employment Practices Act, the Rhode Island Civil Acts Act, and the Rhode Island Whistleblowers' Protection Act.

Most of the employment law work we handle involves litigation regarding discrimination, harassment or retaliatory discharge. If you have been treated differently at work because of your race, gender, age, religious beliefs, national or ancestral origin, disability, sexual orientation, gender identification, we will evaluate your claim and aggressively work to help you recover full and fair compensation for any losses.

We handle sexual harassment claims where job-related benefits have been offered or promised in exchange for sexual favors (known as "quid pro quo" harassment), as well as situations where the acts of employers or other employees have created a hostile work environment. Hostile environment cases can be based on any protected category in the federal or state statutes, including race, gender, age, religious beliefs, national or ancestral origin, disability, sexual orientation, gender identification.

Whistleblower Claims

If you have properly reported the wrongdoing of your employer, another employee or one of the company officials, and have either been fired or punished for doing so, you are entitled to protection under the Rhode Island Whistleblowers Protection Act. We will help you recover compensation for all losses incurred.
