Tier 2(General) holders are not eligible for contract jobs

Post by tier2user » Tue Oct 08, 2013 4:32 pm

Hello, this is for Tier2(General) visa holders, be aware of rules of what UKBA have formulated. Even the important rule says Tier2 visa holders cannot work contract jobs. Find the below one for a sponsor

You are only allowed to assign a CoS if it is clear that you have full responsibility for deciding the duties, functions and outcomes or outputs of the job. Where the sponsored migrant is carrying out work for a third party on your behalf, they must be contracted by you to provide a time-bound service or deliver a time-bound project on your behalf. This means a service or project which has a specific end date after which it will have ended or the service provided will no longer be operated by you or anyone else. They must not be:

a) agency workers, regardless of any contract between you and any employment agency or employment business

b) contracted to undertake an ongoing routine role or provide an ongoing routine service for the third party, regardless of the length of any contract between you and any other party

which clearly means a no go for contract jobs. Hope this helps to many who are of the opinion that they can have Tier2 visa and look for a contract job.

what I've mentioned above could become obsolete in future. Still know the rules and plan
