What is a Penalty notice and when does an employer receive one?

A fixed penalty notice will be issued if you don’t comply with statutory notices, or if there’s sufficient evidence of a breach of the law. This is fixed at £400 and payable within a specific period.

We can issue penalty notices to punish persistent and deliberate non-compliance.

A full list of the notices and their fines can be found at How we enforce.
