Norman Musa, a director of NMR Trading Ltd which traded as Ning Restaurant, Manchester, will not be able to run a business until December 2021.
The Insolvency Service’s investigation found Mr Musa failed to ensure that the business completed relevant immigration checks on its employees, resulting in the employment of 2 illegal workers.
The breach was discovered following a visit to the restaurant from Home Office Immigration Officers on 2 October 2014, and a penalty notice of £20,000 was imposed on the company. The penalty remained unpaid at Liquidation on 15 December 2014.
Mr Musa failed to ensure that NMR Trading Limited complied with its statutory obligations under the Immigration, Asylum and Nationality Act 2006 to ensure that relevant immigration checks were completed and copy documents retained resulting in the employment of two illegal workers.
