- Should Employers apply for a Sponsor licence?
Penalties for illegal working
Penalties are tougher than ever before for illegal working offences with fines for workers of £5,000 or 6 months imprisonment and 5 year maximum prison sentences for employers. It's more important than ever to ensure that your business complies with legistlation. We'll cover:

- Home Office new power to seize wages from proceeds of illegal working
- Illegal Working Closure Notices - could your business be at risk of closure while illegal working is investigated?
