Since that date, the State and all public bodies have been bound by a duty to respect the rights enshrined in the ECHR.

As those who have received visits from the UK Border Agency 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 the UK Border Agency 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.
