Can I employ this person?

Whether or not you are aware that an individual has no right to work in the
UK, employing him can still result in a fine. And this applies to all employees: full time, part time or casual. If the employer is a company then the directors or senior employees can be fined. The individual can be deported. At worst, knowingly employing or assisting an individual to remain in the UK without permission can result in a prison sentence.


Useful Link founded by Colin Yeo of Garden Court Chambers contains regular updates of the latest immigration developments.



It is, therefore, important you take care to ensure the individual either has the right to work in the UK or, where necessary, the appropriate permission to work for you or your company. Ennon & Co have considerable experience in providing advice to employers at all levels and where necessary making the appropriate application for work permits and visas
