Regulatory Risks

We can help you achieve your business strategic goals in a safe environment free from risk associated with non-compliance of regulatory restrictions imposed by sections 15 to 25 of the Immigration, Asylum and Nationality Act 2006 (the 2006 Act). You could be sent to jail for 5 years and might have to pay a civil penalty (fine) of up to £20,000 for each illegal worker found working illegally within your business. Employers now have a duty to prevent illegal working in the UK by carrying out prescribed document checks on people before employing them to ensure they are lawfully allowed to work.

Compliance Assessment

Understanding the threats and risks relevant to your business or organisation is crucial. Our bespoke services are designed to help you understand what the threat to your business is and how to overcome that threat. We can help you discover what the most critical areas are within your business environment and then provide effective testing methodology to determine the level of exposure. Regardless of what is identified our compliance assessments are designed to help quantify the problem so that we can work together to solve it.

Off Site Monitoring Services

Our immigration portal enables us to monitor current and future non-compliance risk. We provide a hands-on approach by monitoring employees immigration status on a monthly, weekly or even daily basis. We have various safeguards in place to ensure that you don’t get caught out. Most organisations aren’t aware of a breach until it’s too late, but we have a bespoke system in place that enables us to quickly identify whether a breach has occurred or is about to occur. Our bespoke portal collects data directly from your managers and supervisors for analysis. We use that data to help us monitor the risk to your business or organisation.

Dedicated Account Manager

A dedicated account management will provide professional support as and when you need it most. Our account managers are experienced immigration solicitors and caseworkers that can provide independent advice when you need it.  As your account manager he or she will make every effort to understand your business immigration needs. They will work with you to achieve both your short and long term business goals. Building a good business relationship with your account manager allows you to set up compliant systems and practices that suit your business needs.

Unannounced Compliance Visits (additional fees apply)

If you are a business owner or manager with overall responsibility of others or other branches and want to ensure that current practices are being undertaken correctly and inline with our business immigration hub and in compliance with your statutory obligations then you can arrange an unannounced independent on-site audit.

Risk Outcome Reports

We will provide standard and detailed reports relating to compliance associated risk. Your reports will include information highlighting potential threats, vulnerabilities and or risky HR practices that expose your business to bad press or large civil penalties. Your report will contain a compliance risk score of anything between 1 – 10. Ten being very high risk. Your report will contain practical advice on what should be done to improve your score and to meet your legal responsibilities as an employer of foreign nationals.

Remember, the Home Office will expect you to have systems in place to meet, and maintain, your obligations as a sponsor or employer of migrant workers. Don’t get caught out! The Home Office can visit your business premises at any time to check you have the proper systems in place.  Having the correct systems in place can make all the difference.
