Is it an offence to employ a foreign national who is subject to immigration control?
No. The Immigration, Asylum and Nationality Act 2006 does not apply
to the employment of Commonwealth citizens with the right of abode in the UK
and citizens of any country in the European Economic Area (other than Bulgaria and Romania). However, in order to
avoid race discrimination employers should avoid making assumptions about job
applicants' nationality or right to work in the UK. As a matter of course they should require all job applicants,
including UK and EEA citizens, to provide documentary evidence of their right to work
in the UK.
