Penningtons Manches Cooper’s dedicated immigration audit, training and compliance team identifies risks and offers practical solutions to employers, equipping them with the necessary knowledge to comply with the UK’s immigration systems, rules and regulations. Our in-depth understanding of compliance – together with our proactive approach - ensures that both our clients’ business and reputation are well protected.
Audit, training, and compliance is an area that often gets deferred until issues arise. Our specialist lawyers work alongside the client’s case working team to understand their needs and then tailor a service which works for them, ensuring that this type of work remains a priority.
We assist organisations in putting effective systems and processes in place that comply with Home Office requirements and protect an organisation’s sponsor licence, thereby minimising reputational damage. We work with all sizes of businesses, from small start-ups to multinational corporations; in the education sector, we assist independent schools, English language schools, colleges and universities.
The Penningtons Manches Cooper team also offers bespoke audit and training services. We regularly assist organisations before and during UK Visas and Immigration (UKVI) audits, offering best practice advice and providing practical steps on what changes need to be made. Our clients tell us that they value our insights on what is happening on the ground within their sector.
We are actively involved in liaising with the Home Office on compliance issues, and have been commended by Home Office senior officials for our proactive approach to compliance.
We helped an organisation to rectify their mistakes in relation to their Skilled Worker licence. A new sponsor licence was successfully obtained, and the skilled workers moved across to the new licence, despite the licence lapsing for a considerable period.
At very short notice, we were able to undertake a vital audit before a UKVI visit. We produced an action plan with the necessary steps to take before the UKVI visit and assisted the client in working through these.
