Shift your legal admin
and compliance burden

Ease the workload of your legal team by shifting the legal admin and compliance for global hiring to Horizons. Horizons becomes the Employer of Record (EOR) for your global team, taking on legal obligations and employer liability. Horizons ensures compliant labor contracts are in place, that all legally-mandated taxes and deductions are paid, and that key HR decisions, such as termination, follow the letter of the law.

How Horizons supports legal teams

When Horizons becomes the EOR for your global workforce, it ensures labor contracts are compliant, that necessary taxes are withheld and that payroll and HR regulations are followed.

Save on legal costs

With legal experts in the country of hire, Horizons drafts labor contracts and oversees ongoing compliance so you don’t have to.

Engage experts

Horizons has in-house legal experts, with in depth knowledge of labor and tax laws around the world.
