Guidelines to be issued by the Commission for Racial Equality to employers on the Asylum and Immigration Act warn that they are liable to prosecution if they knew or 'failed to take reasonable care' to ensure that an employee was entitled to work in the UK.

Sunday Business reported (p10) the CRE claims that 'in practice there will be only a very small group of people whom it will be an offence to employ', employers will have to treat all applicants equally to avoid falling foul of the Race Relations Act.

Home Office figures show that compliance costs to businesses will total £12.5m in the Act's first year.
