Preventing illegal working
Employing someone who is not allowed to work in the UK is an offence under UK employment law and every employer has a duty to prevent any illegal employment by carrying out simple checks prior to commencement of employment. To prevent from receiving a civil penalty or custodial sentence you should:
Note: If you do not carry out these checks and are found employing an illegal worker, the UK Border Agency (UKBA) will take tough action against you. You would be fined up to £10,000 for each illegal worker, or face up to 2 years in prison.

When checking a migrant papers, there are 4 stages which could affect whether the migrant is legal in the UK, they are:
When carrying out any immigration check, employers need to be sensitive and avoid any undue tension or claims of race discrimination. It is always easier to carry out checks before someone is employed as these checks are done at the interview processing stages, whereas asking migrant staff who are already employed in your business to provide evidence that they are legal may offend some employees. To try and avoid such issues, global 4 Immigration (G4I) has ways to carry out such an audit and to explain to migrants if they ask why we are doing such an audit. G4I always puts the migrants first and as part of this we provide each migrant a route planner if they need to extend, switch or apply for settlement or citizenship in the future. In many cases the migrant workers will not have anyone to provide them with free initial advice so this is added value the employer is giving their migrant staff.

Once G4I has carried out a full audit and verified all employees are legally permitted to work, G4I would put in place our Traffic Light System (GTLS).
