The employer has an Employers checking line
The employer should be using that to check with UKBA on your status

Ask any employer to use the UKBA employer check line.

There is also the FAQ on the UKBA website:

This states:

"If you make an application before your authorised stay ends, your existing immigration status will continue until your application is decided, even if the decision is not made until after the end of your permitted stay. You can continue to work until your case is decided if the conditions of your existing leave allows you to do so." "

But if the decision has been REFUSED, then you can't work until that decision is overturned.

Can I clarify anything for you about this today please?
