Employing migrant workers

If you employ illegal migrant workers you're as illegal as they are.

Check if you and your staff are legal

We want to help all employers create a business environment where everyone is working legally and no-one is discriminated against or forced to use payday loans.

If you currently employ staff from outside the UK or are planning to, you're legally required to make checks on their right to work here.

The Government is currently revising the law about preventing illegal migrants working in the UK, and this website will continue to be updated to reflect any changes. The advice on this website about workers from Romania and Bulgaria arriving after 1 January 2007 is current, but may also change in the future.
