THE Leeds office of leading North law firm Ward Hadaway has been shortlisted for four industry awards.
Immigration law is not only complex, it is also constantly subject to change.
However, with the Government increasingly putting the onus on employers to check the immigration status of their workforce and fines of up to £20,000 per illegal immigrant for companies and organisations which fail to do so, this is an issue which no-one can afford to ignore.
Our specialist immigration team cuts through the complexity and keeps you up to speed with advice and assistance on all aspects of UK immigration law.
We provide commercially-focused, timely legal support to employers of all sizes across a wide range of industries and sectors.
Combining employment expertise and the ability to deal with the authorities, we are uniquely placed to advise you on the full range of issues surrounding the employment of foreign workers whilst ensuring all relevant UK regulations are met.
Our team can provide assistance in a wide range of areas including:
Recruitment stage – preventing illegal working
Where migrant workers are already employed
Upskilling your staff
We canalso help on a practical level with advice on HR practices and procedures when it comes to non-UK workers and on potential race discrimination claims.
We are members of ILPA (the Immigration Law Practitioners’ Association) and we also offer free initial consultations for visa applicants to consider their eligibility for a business visa and employers who are looking to become a sponsor or recruit staff from overseas.
For further details on how we can help you to negotiate the minefield of immigration legislation, please get in touch.
