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.

“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.”
