Are you compliant? Preparing for a UKVI visit

Immigration compliance has become increasingly burdensome on employers. With UK Visas and Immigration (‘UKVI’) devolving responsibility on employers to police ‘immigration’, it is now even more important for employers to have HR systems in order.

The BWB Immigration team has advised a range of employers, including hedge funds, international charities and media corporations on how to prepare for an announced or unannounced visit from a UKVI compliance officer. Long gone are the days when UKVI were focusing enforcement activities on nail bars and takeaways.

Why choose this course?

Getting immigration compliance wrong has commercial, legal and reputational risks. Join Philip Trott and the BWB Immigration team to make sure that your HR systems are in order, to avoid enforcement action being undertaken against your organisation by UKVI compliance officers.

The team will share our practical tips for ensuring any UKVI compliance visit passes off without a hitch.

The session will be of particular interest to organisations maintaining a UKVI Sponsor Licence and will include:

• Right to work check refresher
• UKVI Sponsor Licence duties under Tier 2 (General) and record keeping obligations
• Top tips for preparing for an announced compliance visit
• Dealing with an unannounced compliance visit

Who should attend?

This seminar will be of particular relevance to HR managers and officers, internal audit/compliance teams, in-house counsel and other position holders with responsibility for immigration matters.
