Chace Ruttenberg & Freedman, LLP is the trusted advisor for its clients regarding all aspects of the employer-employee relationship. Our firm assists our clients in hiring and disciplinary practices, navigating state and federal discrimination laws, understanding employee rights under the Americans with Disabilities Act and the Family and Medical Leave Act, and the protection of employer assets, including proprietary information and trade secrets. We are frequently consulted with respect to providing reasonable accommodation of disabilities, avoidance and management of sexual harassment claims, claims arising from reductions in workforce, contract claims, and enforcement of noncompetition obligations.

Our employment attorneys work closely with our litigation practice in matters in state and federal courts, as well as in proceedings before the Rhode Island Commission for Human Rights and the Massachusetts Commission Against Discrimination.

CR&F has represented management in negotiations and disputes with organized labor, including grievance and arbitration proceedings, and in the defense of claims brought by non-union employees.

CR&F also represents individuals for claims for wrongful discharge and discrimination, and in the negotiations and documentation of severance benefits.
