Ask an Immigration Solicitor. Get an Answer ASAP.
Good evening and welcome to JA.
Have you tried contacting your solicitor? It is uncommon for the Home Office to take thins long to reach the decision.
What your lawyer has advised?
Your lawyer must contact them as soon as possible and after your lawyer may involve your local MP (Member of Parliament) to chase them, they will reply.
One year is long enough for your lawyer to chase them! especially that you have been suspended from your work.
I see. It is important to involve MP here as they tend to reply quicker to them.
Meantime, your lawyer can write a letter to your employer, explaining that your right of work is not affected until you are waiting for a decision. This not always works though. It is still worth trying.
I can understand, I am sorry for that. It may take a little time but it will be sorted, do not worry. Good luck
