Tesco now faces a civil penalty of up to £10,000 for each illegal worker unless it can provide evidence that it was carrying out the required checks under the current immigration legislation.
A UKBA spokesman said: “We received information that some staff members were working in the UK illegally at Tesco.com in Factory Lane, Croydon.
“The operation was part of an ongoing campaign to tackle visa abuse which has seen over 2,000 offenders removed since the beginning of May.”
