Illegal Workers

Illegal Workers


It is an offence under law to employ an individual who has no right to work or reside in the UK.


The Home Office’s website regularly names businesses that have been caught breaching immigration rules on illegal working and the level of financial fines levied against these businesses.


As well as the reputational damage that this could have on your business’s public image, any history of immigration non-compliance could ultimately result in your sponsorship licence being revoked and your business losing its ability to sponsor migrants.

Our business immigration team can help you avoid the pitfalls of employing an illegal worker and can assist with the following:


  • Compiling tailored right to work checklist for your business;
