How to deal with suspension/revocation Tier 2 Sponsor Licence?
At YDVISAS, we have recently helped two of our clients who had their sponsor licence revoked and had no right to appeal. We successfully got their Tier 2 Sponsor Licence re-instated.
What Is Happening?
In the recent months, the Home Office has visited organisations and businesses who hold Tier 2 Sponsor Licence, in order to check if their business is complying with the Tier 2 sponsor licence duties.
If the business is found to be in breach of their sponsor duties, the Home Office has the right to revoke the sponsor licence without any right of appeal. Does this mean that all the non EU skilled workforce has to leave the UK and your business has to suffer? The clear answer is NO.
In our case, the Home Office had argued that the sponsored migrants had not complied with the job duties that were mentioned on the Certificate of Sponsorship. The Home Office therefore had a concern with the genuine vacancy requirement. The Home office was also concerned about the sponsor’s general duties, migrant tracking & reporting and record keeping & recruitment practices.
How Did We Deal With This?
Even though there was no right of appeal, we helped the business to challenge the decision through a pre action protocol for Judicial Review.
In order to have our client’s sponsor licence re-instated, we prepared strong grounds against the Home Office’s revocation decision. We gave every possible evidence in order to prove as to why the decision to revoke the licence was unreasonable and unlawful. We were therefore successful in reinstating not only the licence but also safeguarding the jobs of the employees on Tier 2 visas.
