Dealing with a Home Office Investigation

Dealing with a Home Office investigation can be a stressful situation for any company or employer. The Home Office has the right to audit any company it wishes in order to ensure that the company is compliant with current UK immigration legislation and its duties as a sponsor.

You could potentially lose your sponsor licence and be fined up to £20,000 per illegal worker and your directors and HR managers could face criminal prosecution. The value of your business and its reputation could be damaged. Whether you are in the midst of a Home Office investigation, or you would like to ensure you are compliant with the Home Office requirements, we are here to help you to maintain your sponsor licence.

With an established and highly experienced team at hand, we will be delivering the very best advice and assistance for your company, including:

  • If you are being investigated by the Home Office, we will be there with you every step of the way and audit all your current HR policies and processes identifying the areas where you will require assistance.
  • If you are looking to review your current systems to ensure you are Home Office compliant, we will review your current recruitment and HR policies, systems and practices to identify any areas for improvement and then recommend changes.
  • We will provide tailored training to your HR or recruitment teams on the responsibilities and requirements for sponsoring employees.
  • We will provide you with regular updates on changes to the Points Based System via set meetings, seminars and alerts.
  • We will advise you and assist with the reviewing of your sponsored employees' files to check compliance with duties under the Points Based System including record keeping, new employee checking procedures and reporting and recommending changes.
