Civil Penalties can be a serious threat to your business if you employ workers who are subject to immigration control.

The Home Office can impose an illegal working fine (or civil penalty) of up to £20,000 per worker for any employee it believes does not have the right to work in the UK.

It is very important that employers know what right to work checks they need to undertake; this ensures that they employ workers who have the right to work in the UK and have retained sufficient documents to be able to establish a statutory excuse to avoid a civil penalty.

Employers can also face criminal sanctions if they are believed to have knowingly employed illegal workers.

Our immigration specialists can advise on how to protect your business from Civil Penalties. We can also advise on challenging any Civil Penalty imposed by the Home Office.

We have a good success rate in achieving both the cancelling of civil penalty notices and reductions in civil penalties imposed on our clients.
