WHO SHOULD ATTEND our Seminar on Wednesday 6 December 2023?


This seminar is essential for any enterprise or anyone who already employs or wishes to employ staff, irrespective of whether they are from the UK or overseas. It is relevant for CEOs, Company directors, Human Resources managers, Operations managers, Partnerships, Sole traders or Start-ups. It is imperative if you already have or hope to have a sponsor licence to recruit staff from abroad.

Conducting Right to Work Checks

It is essential for businesses of all sizes across the UK to perform the Right to Work (RTW) checks correctly. From 22 January 2024, failure to conduct these could lead to crippling civil penalties of up to £60,000 for each worker that does not have the right to work in the UK.

Home Office Sponsorship Compliance

The Home Office is stepping up their in-person sponsor audit visits. Sponsor licence audits could be conducted at any time, prior to granting a sponsorship licence or at any time when you are a licensed sponsor. The UKVI audits could be unannounced.

Why Attend?

In this brief and free guide, we highlight some of the key procedures and essential elements of sponsor compliance.

Further in-depth training - SAVE THE DATE

We will be holding detailed and up-to-date training on 21 February 2024 by which time the new civil penalty provisions will be in place. Please save the date and check this Events page for details.

Employing Migrant Workers


Date:  30 March 2022

Host: Roelens Solicitors, Berard & Lovell and Spires Legal 

Presented by Nilmini Roelens, Helene Berard and Arj Arul

on Employing Migrant Workers

The Right to Work checks we must all conduct as employers are an important part of the recruitment process. Ensuring that these are properly conducted, and that adequate evidence is retained, are essential early steps in employing workers of any nationality. The provisions are changing from 6 April 2022. Are you ready?

There are important considerations in the early stages of any employment relationship at the time of the offer and acceptance. This ensures that all parties are aware of what is expected to avoid problems later.
