Thread: Potential loophole in the £18,600.00 settlement rule ?
...So in other words, if you are a government employee and are trying to sponsor a spouse to enter the UK but earn less than the required £18,600.00 per year requirement; there is a possible legal avenue to pursue because the Home Office neglected to check this legal loophole.
The Working Time Directive is one of those laws that many consider “pesky EU intervention” but it was incorporated into UK law in the late 1990s. It basically prohibits employers from making their workers working excessive hours without proper rest, although it makes provisions for overtime where employees strictly consent to the extra work, it also makes it explicitly clear that there can be no detriment for not agreeing to work over 48 hours per week.
