Williams Hortor is here to assist you with finding legal solutions to workplace matters - right from recruitment through to termination of employment. Whether you are an employer seeking to manage your staff efficiently and effectively, or an employee uncertain of their rights in a particular situation, our experience of advising employers and employees alike gives us a rounded view of the employment relationship enabling us to provide you with expert advice and pragmatic solutions.




Clear workplace policies go a long way to provide a high degree of certainty about what obtains in any given situation.

When such policies are implemented through transparent and properly managed processes they can help

(1) increase workplace productivity as a result of well managed staff; and

(2) act as a significant defence against allegations of discrimination, unfair and wrongful dismissal, and any of the more common employment law claims.


We can provide you with advice and assistance on

  • Service contracts, staff policies and handbooks
  • Grievance and disciplinary procedures, including capability matters
  • Redundancies
  • Termination discussions and compromise/settlement agreements
  • Post-termination restrictive covenants.



We can act on your behalf to defend

  • Wrongful, unfair and constructive dismissal claims
  • Discrimination claims, including age, disability, race, religion, sex, sexual orientation, and bullying, victimisation and harassment at work
  • Breach of contract claims
  • Other misc. workplace disputes

We can also assist you in negotiating settlements.



The reality for many employees and workers is that employment law is so complex, that they are often not sure of their rights, or what to do when they find themselves in a difficult situation. Options can be daunting especially in the current economic climate.

Some have the advantage of unions which will provide them with legal advice. Others are not so fortunate.


We can advise you in relation to any of the following:

  • Agency working
  • Breach of contract claims
  • Breach of Health and Safety at work
  • Bullying
  • Compromise (now Settlement) agreements
  • Disciplinary proceedings
  • Discrimination
  • Dismissal - Unfair or Constructive
  • Employment Contract and your rights under this
  • Flexible, Part Time or Fixed Term working
  • Grievance proceedings
  • Holiday pay and entitlement
  • Maternity and Paternity rights
  • Parental leave
  • Redundancy
  • Settlement discussions
  • TUPE
  • Unlawful deductions from wages
