The article announces that the government has tightened the law on illegal working in response to concerns over the increasing numbers of migrant workers in Great Britain. It also reports that from February 29, 2008, the Immigration, Asylum and Nationality Act 2006 will replace the Asylum and Immigration Act 1996, and employers will have new obligations for employees recruited on or after that date. The changes aim to make it hard for illegal workers to remain in employment in the country and ensure employers to get legal workers.
