An interesting judgment has just come out in which the High Court has held to be unlawful the policy of a blanket denial of right to work for those caught in the Legacy backlog. It is called Tekle v Secretary of State for the Home Department  EWHC 3064 (Admin).
This does not mean that those in the Legacy will be granted the right to work. It means that the Home Office have to go away and re-think their policy. It would be open to them to maintain a selective ban on employment in certain cases or even perhaps to maintain a blanket ban, if they put forward better justification and some evidence. They have approximately three months to comply, otherwise there will be further legal action.
