ABSTRACT
The article reports on the fines and punishment that will be imposed on rogue bosses who knowingly employ illegal immigrants in Great Britain. Under the regime, to be introduced in February 2008, those who will be accused of such crime will face unlimited fines and up to two years in prison, while those who negligently do so will incur a fine of up to £10,000 per worker. The law aims to stamp out the exploitation of foreign nationals without proper work permits.
