Civil Penalty Notices

Civil Penalty Notices


Civil penalty notices can have both a financial impact and a reputational impact, and so companies may see it necessary to appeal against a civil penalty notice. But this can be a complicated process, and companies would benefited significantly from the services of Duncan Lewis Solicitors, who have business immigration specialists at the ready to advise companies on these crucial issues.


How much can a company be fined in a civil penalty notice?


Fines for employing illegal workers can be as high as £45,000 per worker for initial offences and £60,000 per worker  for repeat or serious offences and, in extreme cases, criminal sanctions can be imposed. It is therefore important that your business takes the necessary steps to ensure that all of your migrant workers are properly documented.


Are there any other potential punishments?


Companies discovered to be employing illegal workers might suffer penalties other than financial. For example, it could lead to any of the following:


  • Business licence revocation;
  • Director disqualification; or even…
  • Criminal prosecution.
