I'm currently holding Tier 1 Entrepreneur visa since Jan 2018, and I'm looking forward to apply for accelerated ILR (3 years route) in Dec 2020, I will be able to count by the end of 2020 10 FT jobs,
I have 8 positions straightforward, but I have inquiries with regards to two positions.
Q1: One of the employees (Employee A) has left one position (position Y) in Oct 2019 after been working for the company for 22 continuous months, and then she rejoined the company in Jan 2020 to fulfill another job (position Z) for 12 months, does this will be ok to be classified as 2 jobs (but one position filled with an employee, and the same employee partially filled the other position in different period).
Position Y: created in Jan 2018
From Jan 2018 to Oct 2019 - Employee A (over 12 months full time and the rest part time), and may be another employee will join the company at some point in 2020
Position Z: created in Jan 2020
Jan 2018 to Dec 2020 - Employee A (12 months)
My question is:
Does the above classified as two jobs have been created 12 months or more for each?
Q2: Another employee (B) been working for the company for almost two years in position X, and then an employee filling position M have left the company after been working for the company for three months, and then employee (B) left position X to position M for additional 9 months, does position M will be classified as one job been created for 12 months?
Position X : created in June 2018
From June 2018 to March 2020 - Employee B (over 12 months FT), and from April this position is no longer required (use freelancers).
Position M : created in Jan 2020
From Jan 2020 to Mar 2020 - Employee M FT (3 Months)
From April 2020 to Dec 2020 - Employee B (who was filling position X previously) filled position M for 9 months FT.
My question is:
Does position M will be classified as a 12 months FT position (and Employee B 9 months work will be added to the 3 months work to complete the 12 months period)?
I'm start preparing to sort out all the required paperwork to be ready in Dec 2020 for ILR application (accelerated route - 3 years).
I'm wondering if you can help with my inquiries above,
Thanks in advance.
The rules only specify that you need to have two jobs - nothing is specified about the employees who complete the roles. Which means, as per the rules, your way of doing that is totally justified.
However, HO can always question the genuineness, so it is entirely depends on how well you can argue this (if HO challenges it) and you need to be confident enough for it to stand up in court, if needed.
The few questions that I would have would be justification for this. Jobs have specifications and employees generally have meet certain qualifications. So, it normally is difficult to justify the same employee filling two very different job specifications. If the job specifications are similar, then it is difficult to justify they are different jobs unless both are being filled at the same time.
I will need to make it clear on my ILR application to the HO case worker to explain those two employees A and B, so he/she can find the answer to any question on his/her mind,
Note: I have 8 straightforward jobs have been created, I'm just worrying about the last two (position Z and M as explained above)
Also, I intend to add to my application my business structure diagram, and a table for each job covering the whole three years period explaining job/position filling (i.e. name, national insurance, ...... ) including ILR/British holder as well as non ILR/British employees.
If you have any advice on how I should make it clearer to the case worker, it will be much appreciated,
Thanks in advance.
