Employing workers from outside the EU can be incredibly complex, and the consequences of getting it wrong can be drastic. Let us handle this for you so you can get on with what you do best – running your business.
As the world becomes a smaller place, with companies become increasingly global and people traveling more freely, the importance of being able to utilise migrant workers has become essential. However, this is all occurring at time of increased regulation of the labour force, with potentially catastrophic consequences if you get something wrong. Our specialist immigration lawyers can assist you with every element of managing your migrant workers, including:
- Obtaining a Grade A Sponsor License including managing and renewing an existing one. (See Tiers 2 and 5 guidance for sponsors)
- Creating and allocating Certificates of Sponsorship. We can help assign a COS under an appropriate immigration rule.
- Day to day management of the Sponsor Management System, including all reporting requirements.
- Assisting with visa applications for your employees. We can provide general or individual immigration advice. See all the individual services we can provide.
- Managing on going compliance with complex Home Office requirements
- Ensuring all relevant documents are retained and verified
- Advising on illegal working
- Challenging civil penalty notices
We can help with all aspects of Tier 2 and Tier 5 licensing, including advising on which sub categories may be most appropriate before you even start. We can also organise full compliance audits of your company, and assistance in resolving any issues before the Home Office do.
The types of Tier 2 and 5 VISAS are:
- Creative and sporting:
- Charity workers:
- Religious workers:
- Government authorised exchange:
- International agreement:
Tier 5 (Youth Mobility Scheme)
Remember, if you get this wrong then not only may you loose your rights to sponsor migrants, meaning they can no longer work for you, but you risk large fines of up to £20,000 per issue and even a criminal record. As such, why take the risk?
