I am an employer in the UK. We used to have a great employee working for us for about 4 years that got picked up on a minor motoring offence but when they ran his documents, it was found that he was wanted back in Poland for having breached former parole conditions. The original offence, I believe, was drugs related, but I am not sure how serious or what the length of his custodial sentence was. When he got picked up in the UK, he was held on remand for about 5 months and was then returned to Poland where he spent a further 8 months seeing out his sentence.
He now would like to come back and work for us and we are keen to have him re-join.
What I am looking for is some advice on how we could help him gain settled status, would he get declined or can we help him in some way to secure it? He is re-joining soon and I want to be able to set both his and our expectation of how the process will work and what the most likely outcome would be. I am seeking more precise details as to his original offence, sentence and parole conditions etc but in the meantime, can anyone give me any pointers on how to guide and help him secure settled status please.
