A Glasgow restaurant boss who employed four illegal immigrants has been fined £25,000.

Harcharan Singh Sekhon, 40, who owns Bombay Blues, was disqualified for 6 years from being a director of a limited company.

An investigation also found that the workers were being paid less than the minimum wage.

Mr Sekhon had failed to ensure that the relevant immigration checks were carried out, resulting in the employment of four illegal workers.

The workers were discovered during a visit by Home Office Immigration officers in January 2015.

Mr Singh Sekhon was banned from managing or controlling a company until 2022.

Robert Clarke, Group Leader, Insolvent Investigations North, said: "The Insolvency Service rigorously pursues directors who break employment and immigration laws.

"Taking on staff illegally means they do not enjoy basic employment rights, a clear breach of a director’s duties.

"The public has a right to expect that those who break the law will face the consequences.

"Running a limited company brings with it statutory obligations as well as protections, and this should serve as a warning to other directors tempted to take on illegal staff."
