Do I Need A Business Immigration Solicitor?

As a UK business it’s up to you to manage and monitor migrant employees – before you hire them and throughout the course of their employment with you. Failure to follow immigration rules will result in serious sanctions and financial penalties. These include:

  • A fine of up to £20,000 per illegal employee
  • Publication of your organisation’s details by Immigration Enforcement to serve as an example to other businesses.
  • Crown court hearings in cases of knowingly employing someone of the incorrect immigration status. These that can lead to unlimited fines or up to two years’ imprisonment.

In addition adverse publicity that follows any sanction can do untold harm to your commercial reputation. So while there’s no obligation to get legal advice from a specialist immigration solicitor there are clearly distinct advantages in doing so. At Milestone Solicitors for example, we explain the intricate immigration issues to your organisation, keeping you up to date with changes to immigration law that may affect your business. Staff familiarity with immigration rules is one of the most effective ways to avoid breaches of the law.
