All UK employers are duty bound to prevent illegal working in compliance with the UK immigration rules.
The Home Office expect sponsoring companies to maintain a thorough understanding of the Sponsor Licence guidance notes and regulations. Sponsors are expected to have in place robust systems and processes to effectively manage and monitor migrant workers, and strategies in force to identify areas of non-compliance.
Adherence to the Prevention of Illegal Working regulations is of paramount importance, and clear “right to work” checking policies must be implemented across your business. Significant civil penalties exist for businesses found to be employing migrants in breach of their conditions, where “right to work” checking procedures have not been complied with.
