Practitioners and HR specialists will receive an in-depth look at sponsor licences. This will not only include practical advice on how to obtain a sponsor licence but also how to ensure effective compliance and retain the licence. We will discuss the updated submission process and compliance requirements post the December 2020 changes, highlighting pitfalls and providing tips. We will advise upon the HR practices necessary to ensure sponsor duties are met and other factors that the Home Office would be looking for at a compliance visit. We will also discuss our experience with sponsor license refusals, downgrading and revocations – providing tips for avoiding these and challenging them where necessary.
