Immigration Minister James Brokenshire commented about his concerns over the working conditions that illegal immigrants would be subjected to, “Experience tells us that employers who are prepared to cheat unemployment rules are also likely to breach health and safety rules and pay insufficient tax”.

The infographic below helps shed some much needed light on the aspects of commercial law surrounding the employment of migrants.
