- An employer may be heavily penalised if they have people working off the books or clandestinely. There may be a hefty fine or a prison sentence. Punishments are the most severe for work carried out off the books.
- Your employer’s punishment may be even more severe if they are failing to comply with other laws. You will find the most important rules further down on this page.
Don’t let your employer scare you by threatening to go to the police. They risking big problems themselves!
