Immigration regulatory compliance and case working are key factors impacting the implementation of international skills resourcing, deployment and engagement of non-resident talent in the UK.   Getting compliance wrong can lead to fines of up to £20K per migrant worker unlawfully employed.

Failure to comply with The Home Office regulatory requirements can present significant business risks including substantial financial penalties, the loss of talented employees, loss of or downgrade of sponsor licences, suspension of premises licences, closure of business premises and even criminal charges. 

Changes introduced 12 July 16 have lowered the threshold at which The Home Office can consider criminal charges against both the employer and now your employees.
