“I recently used Hadi Law for an immigration matter. I would like to thank everyone at Hadi Law Solicitors for their excellent work, professionalism, kindness and understanding. Thank you for sorting my query out in such a quick and friendly manner.”
As a law firm, we are dedicated to helping you achieve your commercial ambitions. The UK’s ongoing skill shortage means businesses must look abroad for the talent they need to grow their organisations. Having a Sponsor Licence that allows your business to recruit employees from anywhere in the world puts you at a competitive advantage. By taking care of your compliance, we help you stay at the top of your game.
What is meant by Sponsor Licence Compliance?
UK Sponsor Licence holders have a duty to comply with several duties and responsibilities set out by the Home Office. These include (but are not limited to):
Conducting Right to Work checks on all migrant workers.
Keeping adequate records concerning migrant workers’ contact details, visa status, and employment (for example, their role and salary).
Report certain matters to the Home Office within specific timeframes.
Our Business Immigration Solicitors can manage your reporting requirements through the Sponsor Management System (SMS) meaning you can be confident that your reporting duties and responsibilities are being met. In addition, we can provide annual or bi-annual mock audits to ensure your HR record-keeping concerning migrant workers meets Home Office compliance obligations.
What are some typical questions asked during a compliance visit?
Typical questions you need to be able to answer include:
Do you own or have links to other businesses?
How many staff are employed in each of your organisation’s premises?
How many migrant workers do you have in total?
How does the organisation ensure potential employees have the qualifications necessary for their role?
What is the hourly rate of pay or annual gross salary for the roles held by sponsored migrants?
Where are the Sponsor Licence policies and procedures kept?
Do all roles have a job description?
Every one of the above questions is designed to tease out whether or not your organisation is complying with its Sponsor Licence duties and responsibilities. When we conduct mock audits, not only do we check your HR systems and SMS, but we also role-play the questions you are likely to be asked in a compliance visit, which will often happen with little or no advance notice.
