The Human Rights Act 1998 came into force on 2 October 2000 and incorporated the European Convention on Human Rights and Fundamental Freedoms (‘ECHR’) into UK domestic law. Since that date, the State and all public bodies have been bound by a duty to respect the rights enshrined in the ECHR. We will always consider the issue of human rights when advising our clients and recommend courses of action where this is appropriate. It could be relevant either as an issue on its own or as an additional argument.

As those who have received visits from UK Visas will confirm, the process can be the most stressful and expensive cost to the business and can result in a company being publicly shamed.

We have been regularly consulted in relation to illegal working and visits by UK Visas and have acquired a vast bank of knowledge to assist clients to ensure that their systems are compliant with the Illegal Working Provisions. We can conduct an audit to examine these systems and advise.

Where a business has been raided and has been issued with a penalty notice we have the knowledge and experience of the procedure to enable the business to challenge the decision from an informal appeal to following the appeal process through the courts.

We can advise and assist with appeals against the issue of a penalty Notice. Also see sponsorship Registration.

We were at the start of the Sponsor Licensing System having the knowledge and experience to provide advice and as a result were able to provide audit report which were submitted either with the application or sent in later.
