Civil Penalties and Fines
We have acted for a number of employers who have received fines for employing illegal workers. We successfully challenge fines and sometimes we can get a fine removed or agree a monthly instalment plan.
Every employer should check every employee's right to work in the UK. You could face a £20,000 fine per illegal worker.
To reduce the risk, we can prepare policies and procedures and train your HR staff on how to implement them.
Lack of knowledge or awareness is not a defence.
