As a recognised sponsor, you must comply with the duty of care, the duty to keep and retain records and the obligation to provide information. The IND can check this at any time. This prevents misuse of the position of a recognised sponsor.
The IND carries out checks by requesting information from you, your employee or other organisations, such as the Chamber of Commerce. The IND also carries out inspection visits to recognised sponsors. Is the IND going to visit you? Then you must demonstrate that you are complying with the duty of care, the duty to keep and retain records and the obligation to provide information.
Sometimes the IND discovers that a recognised sponsor is not complying with the obligations through fraud or abuse, or through ignorance or carelessness. Has the IND discovered a violation? This can have consequences for you. You can receive a warning or be fined. In the event of serious violations, or if you have repeatedly failed to comply with your obligations, the IND can withdraw your recognised status. Your employee's residence permit can also be withdrawn.
So make sure you know what the IND expects of you. If you would like to know more about your duties and inspection by the IND, visit www.ind.nl.
