Tier 2 Sponsor License Compliance
Tier 2 Sponsor License Compliance relates to a set of duties and responsibilities that a business or organisation must uphold when they employ migrant workers. These can be complicated and maintaining compliance is not always straightforward.
Therefore, NA Law Solicitors provide an expert training programme to ensure that you, as an employer, remain compliant and don’t have to face extreme consequences from the Home Office.
What is Sponsor License Compliance?
Sponsor License Compliance relates to the rules and regulations set out in the Tier 2 and 5 Sponsor Guidance as well as various UK legislation. They apply whenever you employ migrant workers and include the need to ensure they are legally permitted to work here and that you maintain records and reports in order to prove this.
It is incredibly important that your business remains compliant because failing to do so could damage your reputation to the point of no operation. It could also result in the migrant worker being sent back to their country of origin. The Home Office are carrying out more checks than ever (Inspection Visits) and there is zero-tolerance for non-compliance.
Duties and Responsibilities
To be deemed compliant and given the status of Sponsor License Holder, there must be personnel within your organisation who maintain a set of duties and responsibilities. These include:
- Monitoring immigration status
- Preventing illegal employment
- Maintaining migrant contact details
- Monitoring and reporting migrant activity
- Ensuring that relevant professional registrations and accreditation have been obtained
- Complying with the law, including employment law
- Producing reports for the Home Office relating to various changes within specified deadlines (e.g. changes to salary that must be reported within 10 working days)
