If not, employers face a £20,000 fine per illegal worker…
Not a day goes past without the papers focussing on immigration. The Government’s promise on reducing net migration and clamping down on illegal workers was a key focus of the Conservatives election manifesto. The general consensus is that there is likely to be a clamp down on employers to ensure compliance with the relevant legislation and to ensure that the Government is adhering to its’ promise.
Recent figures show that the number of immigrants born outside Europe who came to live in this country after winning EU citizenship elsewhere has tripled in the last decade. In addition police forces have reported a spike in the number of arrests of suspected illegal immigrants.
RadcliffesLeBrasseur has prepared a cost effective training pack and materials setting out employers obligations regarding their duties to ensure compliance with the legislation. Failure to ensure compliance can result in a heavy financial penalty (up to £20,000 per illegal worker) and in worse case scenario imprisonment. It is crucial that employers have good systems in place to ensure that they are not targeted by illegal workers and if they are, that they can show they took the right steps in the first place.
RadcliffesLeBrasseur would be happy to deliver the training on site or at their offices in Fleet Street, London.
