ILLEGAL WORKING AND CIVIL PENALTIES

As those who have received visits from the UK Visas and Immigration will confirm, the process can be the most stressful and expensive cost to the business and can result in a company being publicly shamed.

We are regularly consulted on provisions relating to illegal working and enforcement visits by the UK Visas and Immigration (UKVI) and have acquired a vast bank of knowledge to assist clients to ensure that their systems are compliant with the Illegal working provisions. We can conduct an audit to examine these systems and advise on best practice.

We can advise and assist with appeals against the issue of a Penalty Notice.

Where a business has been issued with a penalty notice we have the knowledge and experience of the procedure to enable the business to challenge the decision from an informal process to a formal appeal process at the County Court.
