There is somewhere in the code of practice which states that "Applicants who are currently working in the UK (either for you or for a different employer) under Tier 2 (General), Tier 2 (Intra company transfer) or a work permit must have an offer of a job at or above NQF level 3 if their original grant of leave was made before 6 April 2011 or NQF level 4 or above where their original grant of leave was made on or after 6 April 2011.": http://www.ukba.homeoffice.gov.uk/sitec ... iew=Binary
What happens if a Tandoori Chef work permit holder earning 175000 per annum applies for ILR. His salary was recently increased to £21,000. If he is considered under SOc 5434 and instead skilled chef is considered under category of Chef (appropriate salary 15,000) then he qualifies for the ILR. However, if he is considered under category of Skilled chef ( £29,570), his application would fail. Any comments on the situation?vinny wrote:Ask for a reconsideration based on the new case law.
