Sponsorship licences have various types of duties imposed by the UK Home Office. Sponsorship is based on the two following principles:
The Home Office have published a list of sponsorship duties for employers, which include the following:
As an employer, you are under obligation to ensure that your employees have a lawful right to work in the UK. To do this, you must conduct checks before your employees commence working for you. You must ensure you have relevant ID documents, such as passports or biometric residence permits reflecting their permission to work in the UK. You must obtain documents either of the Home Office’s lists, List A or List B.
List A is aimed at individuals who are permitted to work in the UK indefinitely. List B is for those who are entitled to work for a limited period of time. It is important to keep a record of the documents which show employees’ right to work and can potentially prevent you from avoiding penalty charges.
If you fail to meet the Sponsorship Compliance, it may result in Civil Penalty.
