Recruitment Advice

Every business is looking for the best when they start a recruitment process for a role, and there are times when looking outside the UK is the most sensible option. Recruiting from abroad is a different prospect than doing so in the UK, and there are potentially expensive pitfalls that businesses need to be aware of as they go through the process. Understanding strict immigration rules is imperative to receiving good recruitment advice, as the rules are subject to change on a regular basis, making it harder for businesses to remain compliant.

Sourcing a legal firm to assist in your recruitment process is a sensible proposition as falling foul of the laws would have differing levels of detriment to all involved. Firstly, any breaches can result in substantial fines and court proceedings. Dealing with this fallout is inefficient, tying up time, colleagues and finances as the case proceeds. Reputational damage will also cause lasting negative effects as word quickly spreads. These damages can place businesses in severe difficulty, and when it is something that can be avoided it is always best to plan and prepare properly. 

Seeking appropriate legal advice at the outset and training relevant staff are important steps in ensuring compliance within the immigration rules. Breaches can result in significant financial penalties being imposed and cause potential damage to the reputation of the organisation. It is important for businesses to be aware of all their legal obligations under the immigration rules, including right to work checks, and we provide advice and training to employers on meeting their legal obligations under the immigration rules.
