Experienced Employment Discrimination Representation
In a perfect world, your workplace would operate as a true meritocracy — hiring, accolades, promotions and terminations would be based solely on achievements and ability. It is not uncommon, however, for employees to be discriminated against based on their inclusion in a protected class such as their age, disability, gender, sexual orientation, race or religion. If you or a family member has been discriminated against in the workplace, it is crucial that you take steps to protect your rights and contact a skilled employment discrimination lawyer as soon as possible.
The attorneys at Formisano & Company have more than four decades of combined legal experience. Throughout the history of our firm, we have built a track record of success based on attention to detail, thorough preparation and aggressive representation. Do not hesitate to schedule a consultation at our Cranston, Rhode Island, office.

Our firm provides our clients with appropriate legal advice regarding employment discrimination and attempts to avoid costly and protracted litigation if possible. However, if we cannot reach a beneficial resolution for our clients through settlement, we will continue to strongly advocate for them, including initiating formal legal action if necessary.
Based on the specific circumstances of each situation, workers may be entitled to recover lost wages and benefits; compensation for mental, emotional and physical harm; attorneys fees and litigation costs; and punitive damages. Our clients can trust our lawyers to explore every legal avenue of compensation available to them.
