Advice to Employers – Risks of Employing Illegal Workers
20 August 2013 by Ashlee Campbell
Recent UKBA raids on restaurants and businesses in the Chelmsford area have led to a number of arrests of illegal workers at well known restaurant chains this month. Employers in the region should be aware of the risks in employing workers without having carried out the correct checks and the steps they must take to ensure their employees are allowed to work in the United Kingdom. Employers who fail to carry out these checks face a hefty fine and potentially even a prison sentence.
The Immigration team at Fisher Jones Greenwood offer specialist advice, tailored to our business clients needs, with direct access to experienced lawyers who can guide employers through the complex statutory checks required by the UKBA and offer a document checking service, to protect businesses from the consequences of employing illegal workers.
