HR Support

Including Right to Work, Sponsor Licence Support and Brexit

Immigration is a politicised and constantly changing area of law.  In our experience, many HR departments will have a degree of knowledge around Immigration law but appreciate some additional steer in this niche area.

Whether it is advising on Right to Work, guidance around Brexit or Sponsor Licence support, the Truth Legal Team is always on hand to give HR teams the support they need.

We also offer training on all aspects of immigration law.

Right to Work

Employers have a responsibility to ensure that all employees have permission to work in the UK. Without the defence of having carried out a proper Right to Work check, Organisations found to be employing migrants without permission to work face a fine of up to £20,000 per migrant.

The sanctions for non-compliance mean it is worth making sure you properly understand what is required of you.

UK employers are required to verify that all potential and existing employees are eligible to work in the UK by undertaking Right to Work checks.

There is a ‘3 Step Check.’ If going down the traditional, ‘manual’ route then employers must first obtain documentation from either List A or List B of the Right to Work Checklist. The employer must scrutinise, copy and retain the documents, ensuring that they endorse the copy to confirm when the check took place, and if presented with a document showing a time-limited right to work, ensure they undertake a follow up check.

The Home Office now offers an online checking system which can be used by non-EEA nationals who hold biometric residence permits or cards and EEA nationals who have been granted status under the EU Settlement Scheme.

When done properly, and in accordance with the latest guidance, a Right to Work check will protect you from liability. At Truth Legal we can help you by keeping you abreast of the latest developments in this area and by dealing with any Right to Work issues which arise.  We also offer Right to Work training.


We can help you stay up to date with the latest changes around Brexit and how this impacts your current and future workforce.

At Truth Legal we can work with HR teams to ensure all EU staff are properly registered under the EU Settlement Scheme.  We can achieve this either by directly assisting your staff or by providing HR training.

As well as the upcoming changes around Brexit the immigration system is due to be radically overhauled in 2021.  We can provide guidance so that your business is best prepared for these changes.

At Truth Legal we have Immigration solicitor Louis MacWilliam who heads up our Immigration Team.  With over 11 years’ experience as a dedicated Immigration specialist, Louis is one of the few genuine immigration experts in the area.

If your HR department needs guidance on any immigration matter, book a consultation with us today.

Sponsor Licence Support

As well as helping you to apply for a sponsor licence in order to sponsor non-EU nationals, we also provide on-going sponsor licence support.

We can help you with any issues around sponsorship including the Resident Labour Market Test, requesting and assigning Certificates of Sponsorship, renewing your licence and challenging Home Office enforcement.

We also help you to ensure you are complying with your duties and responsibilities as a sponsor licence holder.

We’re not like
other law firms

Ethically driven

Truth Legal was founded on the idea of putting ethics at the centre of legal services. 

Indeed, ethical working is at our core: in treating people fairly, being open and honest, and taking social responsibility. To that end, Truth Legal sponsor a large section of woodland near Harrogate, planting a tree for every one of the clients we represent.

Real lawyers, real people

We believe a good lawyer shouldn’t just offer technical expertise, but a real understanding of what you’re going through and how best to help you. 

Above all, our team are dedicated to their clients – whether that is guiding them through legal complexities, securing compensation, or simply fighting for what’s right.

We won’t blind you with jargon – we give advice clearly. And when technical terms can’t be avoided we explain them in full.

Exceptional service

In contrast to some firms, we don’t overload our lawyers with cases. Our team provide clients with a more personal service, meaning we can dedicate adequate time to your matter.

Just read our client reviews to see what a difference this can make.
