One way in which UKVI monitors compliance is by visiting sponsors’ premises to check that they are aware of and are complying with their duties.
These visits can be announced or unannounced and can be at any of your offices, branches or client sites.
During a compliance visit, Enforcement Officers will usually:
- speak to the Authorising Officer and other Key Personnel
- speak with sponsored workers
- check a selection of employee personnel files to ensure compliant right to work checks have been carried out, and
- check your HR systems and processes in place to monitor sponsored workers.
Our Immigration Team can carry out a compliance audit at your premises to ensure that you are complying with your sponsor duties and will not fall foul of an unannounced compliance visit. For more information please click here.
