Business immigration

Getting the right person for the right job is essential for organisations - and in many cases, the individual may need permission to work in the UK. Our business immigration team helps clients secure the correct and most appropriate route to enable their employees to work in the UK.

We work closely with a wide range of businesses to secure permissions for individuals. Our clients include major multinational organisations, professional sports clubs and international and national businesses looking to secure the right to work for the individuals they need to grow their businesses.

Business immigration courses

Business immigration, right to work checks and document verification are not always high on an organisation’s agenda. However, recent changes to this area of law now mean that organisations face tougher financial penalties and damage to their reputation if they get it wrong. The business immigration training courses are delivered by our business immigration and employment lawyers.

Courses include:

Right to work and document verification checks

A course which looks at the latest Home Office compliance rules around document verification checks and the right to work. This is a legally complicated and high-risk area for organisations. Those organisations which employ workers illegally could face fines of up to £20,000 per employee. There is also potentially huge reputational damage for getting it wrong. We will provide interactive and practical training to ensure HR and managers have the proper procedures in the place to protect the organisation.

An employer’s guide to immigration and visas

This course explains the current UK work visa requirements together with explaining the role of the licensed sponsor in the immigration and right to work process. In this course, our Business Immigration team gives an overview of the UK’s immigration system and practical and engaging training to help HR and managers understand their responsibilities and obligations to any non-EEA national employees.

Employing in a global marketplace - Immigration issues for employers

A comprehensive and practical training course which addresses key business immigration areas that affect employers, including: 

  • Important changes to Tier 2 - Are you up to date with the new rules?
  • What do you do when an employee's visa expires?
  • Are you complying with your sponsorship duties and obligations?
  • What happens at a compliance visit?
  • Are your right to work checks sufficient?
  • How do you recognise a fraudulent document?
