The UK’s complex immigration laws make it difficult for businesses to keep up with changing laws. A Y & J Solicitors recently had the opportunity to demonstrate their skills and commitment to excellence by helping a valued client, a reputable caregiver, reinstate a suspended sponsor licence. This success story highlights our team’s careful approach, dedication and professionalism in every case. It also ensures that you can maintain a consistent business.
Our client, a respected organisation in the care industry, faced significant operational challenges when their sponsor licence was suspended. The suspensions stem from compliance issues identified during visits to the Home Office, which threaten their ability to recruit business-critical international staff. The termination threatened not only the ability to operate but also the quality of care that could be provided.
The main challenge was addressing the many concerns the Home Office raised, including work activities, not complying with the certificate of sponsorship (CoS), the national minimum wage not being manageable for all employees, and inadequacies in conducting Right to Work checks.
Our first step is to thoroughly review the Home Office’s findings to understand any compliance issues fully. We worked closely with our client to gather evidence, develop a corrective action plan and successfully communicate this step to the Home Office.
Our approach was highly collaborative, and we consulted regularly with our clients to ensure they understood the requirements and were fully engaged in their licence reinstatement process. Our expertise in immigration law is critical to navigating the complex legal landscape, explaining Home Office requirements and making a compelling case for the reinstatement of sponsor licences.
Our comprehensive consultation and evidence-based approach resulted in a successful outcome: the restoration of our client’s sponsor licence. Not only did this enable them to start recruiting international staff again, but it also restored confidence in ensuring compliance with UK immigration laws.
