Notice is on the UKBA website of another set of employer penalties for employing those with no permission to take employment. The restaurants are all Aberdeen based and face fines in excess of £28,000. It also suggests that this is the second round of fines for the same restaurants.

It is essential that proper documentation is obtained PRIOR to hiring anyone . Official ID and clearly endorsed permission to work from UKBA, along with a valid visa, are strictly required.
