Would you like to know that your employees have the right to live and work in the UK and avoid potential penalties?

Every employer should be checking that every employee and new recruit has the right to live and work in the UK, including any staff who have transferred under the TUPE Regulations.

What happens if you carry out that check and find out (or already know) that they don’t or that they only have limited rights?

With the maximum penalty for employing illegal workers rising from £10,000 to £20,000 per worker in May 2014, you can’t afford to get it wrong.

That’s where we can help.  We can help you understand the complexities and vagaries of the points-based immigration system, guide you through the steps necessary for you to become a sponsor and to comply with your sponsorship responsibilities and ensure your staff have the necessary permits and visas.

Please contact a member of the employment team to discuss any issues relating to business immigration.
