UK immigration law puts a great deal of pressure on employers to meet their sponsor duties. With UKVI becoming increasingly vigilant in monitoring and penalising breaches, it is vital for businesses to take compliance seriously. Our lawyers are experts in providing peace of mind when it comes to sponsor licence compliance, whether that’s by providing advice on reporting and record-keeping duties, preparing you for Home Office visits, or providing representation for penalty appeals.
Here’s how we can help
As an employer, you have a legal duty to ensure your employees have the right to work in the UK. If you’ve received a civil penalty for employing illegal workers, we can help you decide on the best course of action.
Your legal responsibilities as a sponsor are complex. Our bespoke training and advisory services ensure you and your staff know exactly what your duties are as sponsors and provide helpful guidance in ensuring and maintaining compliance.
UKVI sponsor compliance visits can happen anytime, often with no prior warning. With compliance failures penalised in the form of fines, licence revocation, and even criminal prosecution, it is vital you are always audit-ready.
