Employee exploitation expected to worsen due to Illegal Migration Bill
A warning has been made from employment experts about the Illegal Migration Bill. It is believed that rogue employers will exploit migrants and asylum seekers if they don’t have the right to work.
The Illegal Migration Bill intends to make asylum requests prohibited for people who travel to the UK illegally. The law would detain and deport them to Rwanda or a “safe third country”.
Anyone who enters the UK illegally can also no longer access modern slavery support.
The government believe the bill will deter people from crossing the Channel in small boats or in the back of lorries.
