According to the Home Office, any UK employers who hire non-EEA talent must complete several compulsory duties. If the employer does not comply with these duties, the Home Office will not hesitate to discipline them. These disciplines include large fines, suspension/revocation of Sponsor Licences and criminal sanctions.
An Immigration Audit is highly useful as it can help identify any areas in which a UK employer is not compliant with their immigration duties. It can then be used to help resolve these issues and ensure that the employer and organisation avoid incurring any penalties.
