Restricting Employment Allowance from employers of illegal workers
14 November 2016
A technical consultation seeks comment on the draft regulations to restrict the Employment Allowance from employers of ‘illegal workers’.
At Budget 2016 the Chancellor announced that: ‘Employers who hire an illegal worker face civil penalties from the Home Office. The government will build on this deterrent by removing a year’s Employment Allowance from those receiving civil penalties, starting in 2018.’
This consultation seeks comments on the draft regulations to restrict this allowance.
The consultation closes on 3 January 2017.
