IMMIGRATION/MOBILITY COMPLIANCE

Employers must be aware of their responsibilities towards the prevention of illegal working in order to remain compliant and avoid violating UK laws; as it is a criminal offense to employ a person who has no right to work in the United Kingdom, or no right to do the work being offered.

Mobility compliance is a crucial component of recruiting overseas nationals. Failure to carry out the necessary checks and to follow the stringent processes designed to prevent illegal working can result in civil or criminal penalties, and restrictions on being able to sponsor overseas nationals to work in the UK in the future.

We work with businesses to implement and establish processes that maintain compliance and provides statutory defence against conviction for employing an illegal worker.

Our compliance services are designed specifically for UK based businesses and will help ensure that they avoid costly penalties and damages to their professional reputation.

OUR COMPLIANCE METHODS INCLUDES

An extensive audit of HR systems, processes, document checking and record keeping in order to identify hiring related practices that put your compliance status at risk
Carrying our gap analysis, identifying gaps in documents and processes, and carrying our remediation to fix identified gaps.
A detailed audit report containing tailored guidance and specific recommendations and action points for improving your compliance processes.

We also provide bespoke in-house training to ensure that relevant stakeholders including key personnel, managers, and recruitment staff gain a strong understanding of when an overseas national can legally work in the UK, the necessary document checks, and how to meet sponsor duties including reporting and record-keeping responsibilities.
