Prevention of illegal working:

Once employers in the United Kingdom obtain a Tier 2 Sponsor Licence from the Home Office to sponsor and employ migrants they are required to strictly comply with each and every aspect of the Home Office: Tier 2 and 5: Guidance for Sponsors.

Any failures by the Tier 2 Sponsors to strictly comply with the Home Office: Tier 2 and 5: Guidance for Sponsors after an announced/unannounced compliance visit or otherwise can lead to potentially various adverse consequences including (but not limited to):

(i)    Downgrading of a Tier 2 Sponsor Licence from A-Rating to B-Rating
(ii)     Suspension of a Tier 2 Sponsor Licence
(iii)    Revocation of a Tier 2 Sponsor Licence.

It will be imperative for the Tier 2 Sponsors affected by such adverse decisions made by the Home Office to challenge them within the requisite strict timeframes which can range from anything between 10 working days to three months to legally challenge them via, for example, Written Representations, Pre-Action Protocol Letter or Judicial Review.

If you as a Tier 2 Sponsor are faced with such difficulties with your Tier 2 Sponsor Licence then for specific legal advice on your case please contact Aston Brooke Solicitors on 0203 475 4321 and a member of our team will be able to assist you.

We can advise employers on what measures they need to adopt to help prevent them from employing those that are not eligible to work in the UK. This will help prevent employers incurring a Civil Penalty of up to £10,000 per illegal worker.
