If you cannot continue to employ someone without breaking the law, then your dismissal of that employee would be lawful.

A good example of this is where a foreign employee’s visa expires and it would be unlawful for you to continue to employ them.

The materials in this section explain how to employ foreign nationals and your overall legal position when it comes to avoiding the engagement of foreign nationals who do not have a right to work in the UK.

We recommend using our guides as your starting point and to set helpful context for the way in which the templates and other documents can be used. If you’re ever unsure about how to use any of our materials, just get in touch on the contact details below.
