Increased penalty for employing illegal workers

04 April 2014 #Immigration


Clarkslegal, specialist Immigration lawyers in London, Reading and throughout the Thames Valley.

Last year we reported that the government planned to introduce tougher civil penalties for employers who employ illegal workers by increasing the maximum penalty.  Since then a draft order has been presented to parliament which will increase the maximum penalty from £10,000 to £20,000 per illegal worker (The Immigration (Employment of Adults Subject to Immigration Control) (Maximum Penalty) (Amendment) Order 2014).

It will apply where an employer is found to have employed workers who do not have the right to work in the UK. If approved this change will come into force on 6 April 2014.
