Our team works with employers within the UK to ensure that they meet their obligations when it comes to immigration checks. We also deal internationally with companies who wish to send workers to the UK. At Saracens Solicitors, we put together customised packages which cover all the aspects that are important to your company when we act as your immigration solicitor in London.
Right to work in the UK
It is every employer’s responsibility to check that everyone in their workforce has the right to work in the UK. If anyone is found to be working illegally, their employer is liable for prosecution and penalties as well as the individuals involved.
Depending on the size of your workforce, you may wish to put detailed systems in place for keeping track of their right to work. You must check at the commencement of employment but, if they have a time-limited right to work, you also need to do further checks in the future. It is illegal to discriminate against someone on the basis of race, which means that you must check everyone’s right to work. Saracens Solicitors can help you construct the systems you need to be compliant.
Having an international workforce
Depending on your requirements, the nature of your work-related activities and a number of other factors including the nationality of your employees, there are various different systems and visas that you might need to understand in order to apply to work in the UK.
Our team can assess your needs and make recommendations that take the latest developments in the law into account when we are acting as your immigration solicitor in London. We can help you apply for the required visas in your home country so that you and your employees have a smooth arrival process when you get to the UK.
