Immigration Compliance Training

Call 0333 363 8577 for a free consultation

Whether it is at the recruitment stage or with your ongoing personnel management processes, it is vital that your UK business’ HR methods comply with current UK immigration regulations.

This includes obtaining an official Sponsorship Licence, registering all non-EEA or Swiss employees with the Home Office and ensuring that the correct licensing documentation is fully completed and updated to the proper standard.

Failure to comply with these regulations can result in large fines, the loss of workers and, potentially, imprisonment. For this reason, we recommend every company invest in HR immigration training.

At IAS, we can ensure that your business is following the correct protocol and avoiding these penalties by offering you quality immigration courses. Get in touch today to discuss your needs.

FAQs

What are my duties as an employer?

As a UK employer, it is your responsibility to ensure that any migrant workers from outside of the EEA or Switzerland are operating with a valid UK visa.

You must also have a Sponsorship Licence in order to employ any foreign nationals who are subject to immigration control in the UK.

As a Sponsor Licence holder, you are required to keep up-date documents about all of your migrant employees which must be updated on a regular basis.

What can happen if I don’t comply to my Immigration responsibilities as a UK employer?

If you do not comply to the responsibilities required of you by the Home Office there are a number of penalties which you or your business could incur.

These include:

  • Having your UK Sponsorship Licence revoked and being unable to hire migrant employees;
  • Being given a Civil Penalty from the Home Office: this is a large fine and written letter of warning;
  • Losing your reputation and credibility as a business or company; and
  • Imprisonment
