The regulations relating to UK employment law can be strict. A new and worrying development in UK employment and immigration law is the introduction of civil penalties that can punish employers who have illegal migrant workers. As such, any UK employer who has been found to have foreign or migrant workers in their establishment working illegally may be subject to a large fine – up to £10,000 per worker. The impact of not only the fine, but the resulting paperwork and extra compliance checks can hurt your business and allow your competitors to get the edge. What will the cost be in lost business? Is also an important factor to consider as a raid and fine by the UKBA will subsequently lead to negative publicity.

UK Employers need immigration lawyers, not only to resist and challenge fines once issues by the UKBA, but also to recieve the required training in order to avoid a resituation and to provide up to date guidance and advice.

It is important to have an immigration lawyer that can assist you in immigration compliance as it is possible to contest the fine that the UKBA  can give. An employer may have a defence if they can show that they undertook the correct checks of the employee’s immigration status documents using the method set out and prescribed by the Home Office.

Our Immigration Lawyers can provide detailed training on the nature of these checks as well as on practice and procedure used by the UKBA.
