Issues with Tier 2 Sponsor Licences and Prevention of illegal working:

Upon obtaining a Tier 2 Sponsor Licence from the Home Office to employ and sponsor migrant workers UK employers are required to strictly comply with each and every aspect of the Home Office: Tier 2 and 5; Guidance for Sponsors.

Failure by the UK employers to adhere to the Home Office: Tier 2 and 5: Guidance for Sponsors can have a detrimental effect on the Tier 2 Sponsor Licences.  Any announced/unannounced Home Office visits that identify a lack of compliance can lead to potentially various adverse consequences including (but not limited to):

  • Suspension of Tier 2 Sponsor Licences
  • Revocation of Tier 2 Sponsor Licences and
  • Downgrading of Tier 2 Sponsor Licences from A-Rating to B-Rating.

It will be imperative for the Tier 2 Sponsors affected by such adverse decisions made by the Home Office to challenge the above 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.

Finding yourself in this position as a Tier 2 Sponsor who is experiencing the threat of adverse consequences upon a Tier 2 Sponsor Licence is a worrying scenario.  We can assist you by providing the correct specific legal advice in your case.  Simply call Aston Brooke Solicitors on 0203 475 4321 and we will appoint an experienced member of our team to begin liaising with you on your case.

We can also deal with any Civil Penalties (Fines) imposed by the Home Office against UK employers who are alleged to have employed workers who do not have the right to work in the UK which can be as high as £20,000 for each illegal worker employed.  We at Aston Brooke endeavour to ensure that our clients remain within the parameters of the law, advising on the processes and methods that they need to utilise and undertake in order to eliminate the prospects of them employing non-eligible/illegal migrant workers in the UK.
