Our team is therefore on hand to provide bespoke in-house training to key personnel and those involved in recruitment to ensure that your employees have a strong understanding of what is required and expected of them.
Importance of Being Immigration Compliant
Businesses whose employees fail to understand basic immigration law not only risk penalties but also face having their Sponsor Licence suspended and in worse scenarios revoked. This could cause major disruption to businesses which rely on overseas talent and in some circumstances especially when a civil penalty has been imposed, this could damage the reputation of the organisation.
