Please need advice
Expert:  LawyerAk replied 15 days ago.

That is correct so if you have a current valid appeal which follows from asylum refusal then your work rights would not be exhausted.

Expert:  LawyerAk replied 15 days ago.

Can you confirm prior to asylum have you made any other applications?

Customer: replied 15 days ago.
My case has not been decided yet,I’ve only did my big internet in November last year after two years of waiting,i was student when I came to Uk,had a British child who was put up for adoption in the Uk with social services and have a second child who’s British but the father has not put his name on birth certificate then applied for asylum and issues a work permit
Customer: replied 15 days ago.
I don’t know why the home office will tell my employer I can’t work when my asylum case has not been concluded and they issued me work permit
Expert:  LawyerAk replied 15 days ago.
Then it seems the home office might have wrote in error and you would need to write to them to state that you have been issued with a work permit.
Customer: replied 15 days ago.
The employer did indicate to home office in the employer right to work check form that I have valid work permit and they’ve seen it and don’t believe is error or am I wrong
Expert:  LawyerAk replied 15 days ago.

Unless it’s something to do with your previous immigration history but it you have a valid work permit this means you would have work right.

Customer: replied 15 days ago.
Could the home office refuses me due to the role of job my employer was offering or can Dey restrict me from working in health care if they feel concerned about me
Expert:  LawyerAk replied 15 days ago.
There would be restrictions on the type of employment you can take. If you have a work permit and within the job you are allowed it’s fine.
