Essential immigration law for employers

Who should attend

HR professionals, recruiters and employment counsel for organisations with employees in the UK.

Synopsis

Increasing compliance activity, the Government’s commitment to a net migration target and Brexit make it crucial that employers have a clear understanding of right to work issues. This course covers the UK immigration system, in the context of the employment life cycle, the areas of law that apply and competing risks and penalties.

 We cover the following:

  • EEA nationals: what options are open to EEA nationals living in the UK
  • visitors: what business activity is permitted in the UK?
  • non-sponsored visas: who can work without an employer sponsor?
  • points-based system: an outline of each Tier
  • right to work checks: criminal and civil liability
  • discrimination in recruitment: when candidate screening becomes a risk
  • terminations: balancing immigration risk with fair decision-making
  • civil and criminal penalties: what could your organisation be liable for?
  • enforcement notices: when issued and how to respond
  • data protection: key points on disclosing information to UK Visas and Immigration

 This course does not address the specific duties of sponsor licence holders or detailed aspects of the points-based system.
