This is just fantastic work that you are doing! Life may not be fair but you are definitely being more than fair
My company is going through a bit of rough phase and they may not be able to afford me at my current salary+benefits. I have started looking elsewhere and I am confident of finding something suitable within the next 2-3 months.
I know that I am eligible for an in-country switch from my current tier-2 ICT to tier-2 Gen as I was initially granted leave to remain in October 2008. As per my understanding the new employer would have had to carry out the RLMT (within the immediate 6 months before the date of assignment of CoS) and assign an unrestricted CoS to me.. once CoS is assigned my application for leave to remain must be made within 3 months. I will of course need to time it in such a way that the last working day, start date etc dont overlap..
Q 1 .. I am assuming it would be ok to have a gap of as much as 2 months between the start date of employment with new employer and as little as no gap (next day start) as long the dates match.. Is my understanding correct?
Q2 My current company has not asked me to leave.. not yet anyway ... but just in case they do .. then I would most likely have to serve 1 month notice in the UK.. my current work permit expires mid- May 2012 however I dont suppose I can continue to live in the UK if I am not employes with the same sponsor for that long.
Can you please tell me how many days am I legally allowed live in the UK after my last date of employment with my current employer? i.e. the no of days I have within which I need to make an application for further leave to remain/tier-2 General through new employer?
there are some blogs I read say that the number of days is 28 and some say 60 days ... so not quite sure..
