Civil Penalty Notice

The prospect of having to pay a substantial civil penalty for the alleged employment of illegal workers can be a very daunting and worrying situation, particularly if the imposition and/or amount of the penalty is not deemed to be justified. We appreciate that, particularly for small businesses, the payment of a substantial penalty can result in closure and often more serious far reaching implications such as company liquidation and/or even personal bankruptcy. This would be particularly unfortunate if payment of the penalty could have been avoided or substantially reduced. As time is of the essence in such matters, it is imperative that you receive the right advice at the right time, which can make all the difference in how much you pay, if anything at all.

At Baker Chase Solicitors, we have many years of experience in dealing with clients who have been served with a civil penalty notice and have a very high success rate in successfully challenging either the imposition or amount of the penalty. In fact, part of our fee is only payable if we successfully reduce your penalty.
