TSSI Comment on Baroness Scotland fine

TSSI Systems : 24 September, 2009  (Technical Article)
Employing illegal immigrants and exposing yourself to hefty fines is avoidable with the use of document authenticity verification tools
“News that Baroness Scotland has been fined for employing an illegal immigrant has brought to light the grim reality that illegal employment is at large within the UK,” warns personal identity and document security expert, John Barker, MD, TSSI Systems. “The fines are hefty and could put many companies out of business if they are caught breaking the law in the same way.”

“Civil penalties are no longer just a vague threat that businesses think they’re safe from. This case proves that ignorance is no excuse and the UK Border Agency means business. Baroness Scotland’s case will do nothing but prompt immigration officers to up their game. Business owners had better make sure they have all the correct and up to date employment documents in place fast or face hefty fines which could seriously dent their profits.“

“You can expect to pay up to £10,000 per staff member if you’re caught out and in today’s uncertain times, nobody can afford these penalties.”

“There are tools on the market that allow anybody recruiting staff to check if they are eligible to work in the UK by verifying the authenticity of their passport, driving license or visa documents. This is a small price to pay for any company wishing to stay in business!”
