Sponsor Licence Suspension & Revocation

Sponsor licence suspension and revocation

If you are an employer who sponsors migrant workers under the points-based system, you need to comply with various duties and obligations to maintain your licence. Failure to do so can result in your licence being suspended or revoked, which can have serious consequences for your business and your sponsored workers.

We can advise you on how to avoid or challenge a licence suspension or revocation, and assist you with any remedial actions or representations to the Home Office. We have extensive experience and expertise in this complex area of law, and we can provide you with practical and effective solutions.

If the Home Office indicated they intend to revoke your licence, then you need urgent specialist support. The business immigration solicitors at Freeths have the experience you need in running successful challenges to suspension and revocation decisions.

Our emergency immigration support includes:

  1. Immediate legal advice: We provide urgent legal advice tailored to your specific situation. Our experienced immigration experts will assess the issue at hand and guide you through the necessary steps to resolve it swiftly.
  2. Emergency licence compliance: If you are facing compliance issues or have received a notice from the Home Office, we will work closely with you to develop a strategy to rectify the situation promptly. Our aim is to mitigate any potential penalties and minimise the impact on your business.
  3. Licence suspension or revocation: In the unfortunate event that your sponsor licence is at risk of suspension or revocation, our team will work diligently to challenge the decision and present a robust case on your behalf. We will represent you in any legal proceedings, ensuring that your rights are protected and we will support you with the reinstatement of your licence.
