Employment Law

Managing people is one of the most challenging aspects of building a successful business. Add to the mix an increasingly complex legislative environment and fast-changing workplace standards, and it’s no wonder that employers struggle to stay a step ahead of compliance requirements.

Our team helps organizations manage compliance obligations and implement best practices on a proactive basis. We offer a full suite of employment law services for all workplace issues in non-unionized environments. Our team provides strategic consultation, counsel and advice, as well as strong advocacy during litigation proceedings.

What our clients say

As a firm, Williams HR Law has taught us about the value of thinking proactively when it comes to employment law. They’ve helped us to think strategically and save money while avoiding unnecessary risk. It’s a refreshing change from the other firms we’ve worked with in the past.

We faced a situation where we had to terminate an employee under a very difficult set of circumstances, and our workplace culture was impacted as a result. WHRL worked to understand our business and develop a customized strategy to help restore the great workplace environment we used to have.

I have recommended and used Laura Williams' legal services on behalf of a number of clients. She is empathetic, thorough, and tenacious in pursuing their needs.
