Immigration Civil Penalties

Receiving a civil penalty notice from the Home Office for suspected illegal working can be a daunting experience for businesses. The implications of such penalties can have far-reaching financial and reputational consequences if not addressed promptly and effectively. At SMK Solicitors, we understand the complexities of immigration compliance and offer expert legal support to businesses in challenging civil penalty notices.

Employers may encounter instances of actual or suspected illegal working within their business operations. This may occur when an employer identifies an employee as potentially lacking the right to work in the UK or when the employer faces penalties or legal proceedings related to illegal working offences.

It is imperative that employers establish and implement policies and procedures to minimise the risk of employing individuals without the right to work in the UK.

Civil penalty notices are issued by the Home Office in instances where businesses are suspected of employing individuals without the legal right to work in the UK. The penalties are determined based on established guidelines and can significantly impact businesses in terms of reputation, finances, and future operations.
