We are a specialised UK immigration law firm.
I want to share some very important information with you if you are being affected by the Revocation of your employer’s Tier 2 Sponsor Licence.
The question I often get asked is this:
If the organisation was to lose Tier 2 sponsor licence then could their sponsored migrant workers continue to work for them?
We wrote to the Home Office asking them to provide a very clear and precise guideline on this. We received a positive response, recently in November 2017, stating that the migrant could continue working for the sponsor up until their curtailed leave expires.
This positive response is very useful for two reasons.
Number 1: The business would not need to terminate employment of their sponsored workers with immediate effect
Number 2: and very important to migrant worker because if there was to be a break of more than 60 days in a Sponsored Migrant’s continued work between employments then they shall not be eligible for settlement. This is a very technical piece of information, but it can mean the difference between qualifying for settlement, or NOT qualifying for settlement. When a sponsored worker can remain with a sponsor— even one with a revoked licence—for a period of time, they are better set to meet the settlement requirements.
I hope this information will be useful to you.
If you need a copy of the email from the Home Office, please contact us. Our contact details are at the bottom of the video. We would be more than happy to share this information with you.

Judicial Review Sponsor Licence Revocation
Judicial Review is legal process that is in place to investigate and ensure that government agencies such as UK Visas and Immigration (UKVI) act within legal parameters of the law; Examples: 1. A Tier 2 Sponsor Licence was revoked and UKVI did not give an adequate reason for the revocation. 2. The UKVI Compliance Officer made incorrect allegations leading to a Tier 2 Sponsor Licence revocation. If UKVI is found in violation of law, they must reverse their decision and pay costs to the sponsor(claimant). However, if UKVI is not found in error by the Court, the claimant must pay UKVI’s costs. It is important to have appropriate legal advice to check if you have good grounds to pursue such a claim.

A sigh of relief after Tier 2 sponsor licence restored. The day our Tier 2 sponsor licence was revoked, we had a nightmare as to how we would keep up with our Non EU skilled staff within our business. We were very fortunate to have engaged A Y & J Solicitors as our lawyers to help us with the Tier 2 sponsor licence revocation. Initially, it appeared that the job would be impossible as the Home office had prepared very strong revocation letter but with A Y & J Solicitors expert help we have our Tier 2 sponsor licence back. Our NON-EU skilled work force have been saved. They know their job well and we would recommend them to all employers and businesses who require legal assistance in relation to their NON-EU skilled staff and Tier 2 matters.
