Immigration compliance is no walk in the park and, with UK Border Agency under pressure to appear tough, employers are in the firing line with increasing numbers of announced and unannounced compliance visits being undertaken. In the last few months, the BWB Immigration Team has advised a whole range of employers including hedge funds, international charities, media outfits and legal service providers on how to prepare for a visit from a UK Border Agency Compliance Officer – the days of UK Border Agency only focusing compliance activity on takeaways, nail bars and car washes are over.
Ducks in a row?: Preparing for a UKBA Compliance Visit is an opportunity for the BWB Immigration Team to share our practical tips for getting your organisation’s records in order so that any UK Border Agency compliance visit, whether announced or unannounced, passes off without a hitch. The session will be of particular interest to organisations maintaining a UK Border Agency Sponsor Licence and will include:
• right to work check refresher
• UK Border Agency Sponsor Licence duties and record keeping obligations
• top tips for preparing for an announced compliance visit
• dealing with an unannounced compliance visit
Getting immigration compliance wrong has commercial, legal and reputational risks. Join Philip Trott and the BWB Immigration Team and make sure that you have all your ducks in a row and avoid enforcement action being undertaken against your organisation by UK Border Agency Compliance Officers.
