New Guidance on Preventing Illegal Working

The Home Office has updated its guidance for employers on preventing illegal working in the UK to allow for the following changes:


  • The ending on 31 December 2013 of the restrictions on Bulgarian and Romanian nationals working in the UK;

  • Restrictions on Croatian nationals which came into force on 1 July 2013;

  • Information on the Fast Payment Option for paying a civil penalty; and

  • An additional circumstance in which a sponsor licence can be revoked if an employer receives a civil penalty.


The guidance can be found here.
