Are your non-UK staff employed legally? Are you up to date with Home Office changes? Do your employees have the correct visa? Are you risking your Employer Sponsorship Licence? Are you prepared for a UKVI visit? Do you fully understand the Points Based System & its applications?

 As an employer – you are responsible. Failure to comply fully with Home Office regulations could land you with a £20,000 fine, a removal of your licence to hire migrant workers and by knowingly employing an illegal worker you are risking a two year custodial sentence. An unsatisfactory non-UK recruitment policy also leaves you open to costly race discrimination law suits. The complex legal and regulatory system often makes it very difficult for employers to ensure that their recruitment and employment policies are fully compliant with the law.

BFI’s Non-UK Employee Visa Workshop: The Employer’s Guide to Immigration & Points Based System brings together top legal, immigration and practitioner experts. This practical and intensive workshop will explore Home Office regulations, the Points Based System and non-PBS routes in depth so you come away with a full understanding of the requirements on you as an employer of non-UK nationals.

This is a unique opportunity for delegates to bring along their policies for evaluation and feedback with industry peers and immigration experts. Have all your legal & policy questions answered; with many Q&A sessions built into the agenda, you can ensure your policies are watertight.

Highlights include:
• Vital Home Office updates
• Getting to grips with Tier 1&2
• Non-PBS routes to working in the UK
• Ensuring your sponsor duties are fulfilled
• New staff: Home Office compliant recruitment
• Existing staff: managing work visas
• Preparing for a UKVI Audit
• Ensuring documentation is comprehensive and genuine
